Happy Monday! This next weekend, Colorado Springs and the surrounding areas will be transformed into Munich, albeit only in character, as our local breweries celebrate Oktoberfest. We completely missed telling you about Pikes Peak Brewing’s Oktoberfest, which happened this past Saturday. If you missed out like us, you can make up for it by attending PPBC’s Local 5 release tonight, as proceeds from the beer go to the Fallen Firefighter Memorial.
Phantom Canyon | 1pm-3pm
Sat, September 16, 2017
1:00 PM – 3:00 PM MDT

Phantom Canyon is celebrating the grand tradition of Oktoberfest by hosting their own festivities, serving up traditional German Fare alongside endless pours of German-style brews.
Phantom will be featuring their Oktoberfest Märzen lager, a version of the perennial favorite with a clean malty backbone, warm pie crust notes, hints of brown sugar, and caramel mingling with subtle pitted fruit and vanilla. Friends from Bristol, Red Leg, Shamrock, Trinity, and more will also be pouring their own great brews for you to sample!
Each ticket includes unlimited beer samples and a plate of delicious, traditional German food to enjoy with your beer. All friends 21+ are welcome, and we encourage you to wear your best lederhosen and dirndls!
Of course, no Phantom Canyon celebration is complete without plenty of prizes and giveaways:
3 lucky guests will walk away with a FREE PCBC growler, filled with their choice of beer,
1 lucky guest will win a “Growler of the Month”– a FREE growler fill every month for a year!
And the guest with the best traditional German lederhosen or dirndls will win a $100 PCBC gift card! It’s a party like no other, so round up your friends and raise a glass! We can’t wait to see you. Zum Wohl!
