Oktoberfest Arrives Early At McGillin’s In Center City
By Chelsea Karnash
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Summer’s end is still a month away, but one Center City bar is getting a head start on Oktoberfest.
McGillin’s, the 152-year-old Philadelphia landmark on Drury Street, is launching its annual Oktoberfest celebration in August.
The city’s oldest continuously operating tavern will be serving German beers and traditional German fare as well as pumpkin drinks starting in late August. Beers include Stoudt’s Fest, Flying Fish’s Octoberfish and Ramstein’s Oktoberfest, among others. German comfort food like bratwurst, knockwurst, red cabbage and mussels steamed in beer are also on the menu.
And if you’re not quite ready to trade summer for autumn, don’t worry—McGillin’s Oktoberfest specials continue through the Midtown Village Fall Festival on Sunday, Oct. 6th.
