A Whale of an Oktoberfest: Green Room Brewing, Jax Beach

It'll be a Whale of an OKTOBERFEST at GREEN ROOM BREWING on Saturday, October 1,
as the brewery hosts its annual Oktoberfest celebration, along with its bottle release of SAVE THE WHALE Imperial Stout. You'll be able to celebrate the Gem├╝tlichkeit of OKTOBERFEST, along with helping out the migratory right whales. That sounds like a reason to party!









The brewery Oktoberfest festivities get underway at noon, including the tapping of the traditional, malty Oktoberfest lager. Get there early enough to purchase the custom Green Room Oktoberfest mug before the limited supply runs out. Bring the mug back all month long for refills of larger-size draft pours at a discounted price! Ein Prosit! 


In addition to the Oktoberfest lager, the brewery also offers the return of Jax-O-Lantern, a pumpkin brown ale brewed with lactose, pumpkin and spices, and it rounds out the special releases with the tapping of Save The Whale Imperial Stout, aged on cocoa nibs and vanilla beans.


And, be festive, because everyone's German during Oktoberfest! Break out your Oktoberfest finest and dress for the fest, because anyone wearing authentic Oktoberfest gear will get 20% off Green Room drafts on Saturday!

Be sure to head to the brewery bar in the back because more awaits! Eric and the team have brewed up eight different one-offs and treatments of the Jax-O-Lantern and Oktoberfest beers, but when they're gone, they're gone! If you've ever been to a Green Room tapping that includes the brewhouse brewery bar, you know that these special brews go thisfast, so don't miss out! 

To satisfy your munchies, the Just Doggin' It food truck will be on site serving up some Oktoberfest fare. The party goes till the wee hours of the night, with music by Wes Cobb. 



But, wait, that's not all!  In addition to tapping the Save the Whale stout on draft, Green Room will once again release the stout in bottles -- 250 of 'em. Not only is this one tantalizingly tasty brew (yes, I speak from last year's experience -- I mean, we're talking chocolate and vanilla), but portions of the proceeds benefit Sierra Club and Oceana, so make sure that you give it a try in the tap room AND bring a bottle back with you!


Saturday also marks the 8th Annual RIGHT WHALE FESTIVAL, held at the Jacksonville Beach Seawalk Pavilion from 10am-4pm, just a short walk from Green Room.  The mission of the fest is to raise awareness of the right whales, which make their way to North Florida each year from the cooler northern waters to give birth. The family-friendly Festival offers a number of educational exhibits and activities about the right whales and the marine environment, and it's fun and informative for the whole family. Admission is free. Custom event shirts will be available for purchase. Before the festival, join KEEP JACKSONVILLE BEAUTIFUL for a beach clean-up from 9-11am. The Pavilion main stage hosts live music throughout the day. Food trucks will also be present. And, of course, visit Green Room Brewing before or after the Right Whale Festival. 



Happy Oktoberfest, everyone! 

Take a look at the BEERSPHERE and TAP THIS pages for info about Oktoberfest and more beer events happening around the Jax area and beyond!  See you out there for Oktoberfest! Prost!
