Put on your lederhosen and celebrate this annual beer festival at the Red Lodge Brewing Company!

While the true festival is held in Munich, cities around the world hold their own auxillary celebrations and in Billings, we celebrate Oktoberfest at Red Lodge!  Embrace German culture and tradition and enjoy locally brewed beers by attending on September 7th.

Food And Drinks

Enjoy some traditional German food like bratwursts, pretzels, and fruit strudels, or even schnitzel!  Various vendors will be set up, offering their takes on Bavarian foods, so that you can taste and enjoy food from this culture.  And of course, there will be beer.  Red Lodge Brewing Company will be offering their traditional Oktoberfest brew – the lager has a smoky and sweet tone to it, and is rich and smooth, so you’ll certainly enjoy it.  Other flavors will also be available, in case you are more of a pale ale fan, but it’s worth trying the official choice at least once.


In between drinks, engage in German-influenced sporting competitions, such as the keg toss!  It’s fun and a great chance to show off your athletic prowess.  Kids are welcome, and will love the face painting and bounce house being offered, and everyone will enjoy live music and dancing.  Performing artists include Alte Kamaraden and The Soul Funk Collective!  On top of that, there’s a costume contest so pull out your best German outfit – lederhosen for the men and dirndls for the ladies!

You don’t want to miss Oktoberfest at Red Lodge Brewing Company, particularly since Billings boasts some of the best breweries in the country!
