As the leaves begin to change color and days get a little bit chillier, we welcome fall, and with it, Oktoberfest!
This coming Saturday, October 4th, West Sixth Brewing will be hosting our third annual Sixth for a Cause Oktoberfest celebration! And, for the third year running, Bread Box non-profit FoodChain will receive 6% of our sales from the day!
Returning for this event will be the popular Dankechain Oktoberest, a traditional German Oktoberfest-style lager! Last time we brewed this you all drank all of it in 2 days, so don’t wait to try this one.
We’ll also tapping a 1/6th barrel of our “Transy Brandy” at 4pm. This beer, which is our Transylvania Tripel that we’ve been aging in Louisville’s own Copper and Kings brandy barrels, is a fun treat – and this is the first time it’s ever been in our taproom. It won’t last long, and will be set up at the back bar at 4.
To celebrate the event, FoodChain will be hosting some special events themselves, including a Feats of Fortitude competition, where you can test your strength by entering the Unpacking Beer Cases Race, Strong Arming Beer Steins, or the Ultimate Pretzel Eating Race.

We’ll have 250 pilsner style special event glasses available to sell starting at 2! These will be $4 with all proceeds benefiting FoodChain!
There will be several raffle items available, and we’ll also be auctioning off a giant, 450-lb pumpkin, grown by West Sixth owner Joe Kuosman, man of many hobbies!
Smithtown Seafood will have German food specials all day, including several different types of wursts and schnitzels. There will also be special merchandise for sale, including Oktoberfest t-shirts. And, if you’re really lucky, you might get a chance to see some of the brewery staff decked out in traditional German lederhosen! Come on down to the taproom starting at 2:00pm this Saturday, October 4th, for what is sure to be one of the best events of the season. Prost!
