HARLEM — Harlem Tavern wants to bring a little bit of Germany to Harlem when it kicks off its first annual Harlem Oktoberfest on Saturday, Oct. 22.

The restaurant’s spacious outdoor patio will serve as the meadows of Munich and visitors will be able to sample several beers from brewers such as Sam Adams, Goose Island, Hoffbrau and Becks. Jagermeister will also be on hand with shots.

“We want to have a good time and we want to put on an event for the neighborhood,” said Harlem Tavern co-owner Gareth Fagan, 33.

In Germany, Oktoberfest runs anywhere from 16 to 18 days, starting in September. The annual festival has become one of the most popular in the world with over five million visitors. Revelers consumed 7.5 million litres of beer at this year’s festival, according to reports.
