Sat September 27 at 1:00 PM, Occidental Brewing Company
6635 North Baltimore Avenue, Portland, OR, USA (Map & Directions)
Occidental Brewing is having their annual Oktoberfest, want to get some beer and german food?
We've gone previous years and this is kind of fun- so I thought I'd throw it up on IRL in case anyone wanted to join us this year. There's no handmade craft booths or dance competitions or any of that- this is really just a brewery, a tent, some tasty german food, and a stage. It runs from noon to 10 pm, but I'd be inclined to head over in the afternoon for some lunch and beers.

Copied from the facebook event details:
Time to celebrate the harvest, it's Oktoberfest season! Our 4th annual Oktoberfest is sure to be the biggest and baddest yet. Obviously there will be delicious beer, including our 2014 Festbier, but also tasty grub from Urban German Grill and live music all day, featuring the return of Chervona! Minors are welcome. $10 gets your drinking mug and first beer. The best party of the year, can't wait to see you there.

Basically it's beer and food. Beer! And food! And music. Beer and food and music.

So sad to find out that this is the only post that uses dopplebock as a tag.

We'll plan a meetup at Prost some time and fix that.

Also, mumkin?! It must be at least 5 or 6 years since I've seen you at a meetup. Pre-IRL site, I think.

Heya! I just moved to Portland about a month ago and would love to meet some local MeFis, as well as enjoy some tasty beer and food.

Yes! Welcome! By all means, join us - we're always happy to refresh our tired in-jokes with the addition of new people.

I ran into cortex at xoxo fest and promised to come to the next meet up. Though I will be out of town for this one, so I will setup the notifications so I can hopefully make the next one!

I'll be a yes, but probably a little bit late a/o dirty depending on how beach cleanup goes.

SoltanG, we're also having a Sunday meetup this weekend if minigolf in SE is easier for you.

I lost track of time- we might end up getting there a little after 1.

I've been lazy and slow this morning, and am just now leaving the house. I should be there in 30 minutes + (undetermined parking time).

We are here

Btw, a token is a full half liter pour in your mug, not a taster or whatever.

This band has a saxamaphone!

We should arrive in about 20. Any particular place to find you all?

Currently we're sitting at a table at the back of the big tent, though we may move around depending in music loudness.

I'm wearing a grey Metafilter shirt so feel free to use me as a lighthouse.

Okay we're in the food line real quick! I have a green sweater on and my girlfriend has a superman shirt on!

Omg she totally is wearing a superman shirt

We have for at least the time being wandered away from the Occidental lot to check out surrounding environs.
