The Carson Valley Inn's annual Oktoberfest & Beer Tasting is Friday, October 17, 2008 from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. in the hotel / casino's Shannon Ballroom. The festive event features a wide variety of beer, an abundance of fantastic food and a live German Band!
Beer lovers will have the chance to enjoy a generous selection of ales, lagers, pilsners and stouts - plus traditional German beers and special Oktoberfest brews. Multiple food stations will offer German favorites such as Beer-Steamed Sausages, Knockwurst, Bockwurst, Sauerbraten, Pork Loin, Sauerkraut, German Cold Cuts, Cheeses, Potato Pancakes, Spaetzle, Hot Pretzel Bar and more plus a Festival of German Desserts and Strudel.
The Al Gruber Band returns this year to play all the German tunes, lead sing-alongs, and make sure everyone feels comfortable doing the Oktoberfest tradition – the Chicken Dance! If you have some authentic German attire, feel free to wear it - a prize will be awarded for the best costume!
The all-inclusive price for all the food, beer, dancing and fun is still just $49 per person! An informational flyer (including ticket order form and hotel room reservation form) is available at the Carson Valley Inn hotel desk, online at www.cvinn.com/oktoberfest or by calling 775-783-6679.
