After a hot and sometimes very humid summer, both locals and visitors are eager to welcome fall. We share in the appreciation for crisp air, lower humidity, colorful leaves, cider, and the core features of Oktoberfest: beer-drinking and merrymaking.
Some of our favorite Wilmington NC Oktoberfest events include:
Hops Supply Co., Sept. 17 – Oct. 3, 2016
Stop by Hops Supply Co. on Oleander Drive for special menu and beer events! Among the mouth-watering specials are pork schnitzel with arugula, red onion, goat cheese and beer braised apples served with a mustard vinaigarette. There are three limited edition Oktoberfest beers that should be delicious with this special menu. Choose Sam Adams Oktoberfest, Sierra Nevada Oktoberfest, or, direct from Germany, Spaten Oktoberfest.
Hops Supply Co. is a gastropub with a relaxed atmosphere and an amazing menu. You’ll love the local seasonal cuisine suited to the great selection of craft beers. You’ll also love the first-class service.
