Zum wohl! (Cheers!)

Oktoberfest, the German holiday which begins mid-September through early October, draws roughly 6 million people to the city of Munich each year, and is celebrated worldwide. Though part of its roots trace back to the marriage celebration of King Ludwig I, Oktoberfest is most commonly known today for its traditional love of beer. Not straying far from this tradition, Smuttynose Brewing Co. will host its first Oktoberfest Party on October 10 from 2 - 7 p.m. at their sustainable brewery in Hampton.

Craft beers on tap will include Smuttlabs' (Smuttynose's experimental arm) traditional Oktoberfest lager as well as the brewing company's Vundebar German pilsner, Finestkind IPA, Pumpkin Ale and the newly released Big Double IPA, with limited-release surprises to be revealed.

Live music will be provided by Boston's synth-dance group, and Converse Rubber Tracks winner, Bearstronaut and opener Superhuman Happiness, the Brooklyn four-piece called "pop perfection, with uplifting male and female vocal harmonies and extended disco beats laced with electronic nuances," by The New Yorker.

Local food will be provided courtesy of Hampton's The Old Salt restaurant, Exeter's Clyde's Cupcakes food truck and Belles on Wheels. Smutty will also host tours, showcasing how they reduce their carbon footprint and conserve energy, of their new brewing facility, and field games like Stein Time and Maas Relay.
