Stocktoberfest in now in its 6th year!

Keg lifting competitions, main stream, craft and seasonal beers on tap, sausages, home brews, chicken dance dance-offs and, of course, beer stein holding competitions, Stocktoberfest 2014 is not to be missed! Modeled after a German Octoberfest with a Stockton twist, Stocktoberfest seating is outdoors on the waterfront with long tables, wooden benches and BIG glass steins.

Back by popular demand in 2014 are Journey and Boston tribute band, Long Time, and grilled oysters from the local vendor Delroys Grill!

Leinenkugel Oktoberfestis a traditional Marzen brewed with 2-Row Pale, Caramel, and Munich malts. The malts give it a hearty character and deep amber color. Tettnanger and Perle hops provide a well-balanced, drinkable finish prefect for Fall celebrations (5.1% alcohol)
Warewolf Red is brewed with Rye Malt hence its naturally "blood red" color. At first smooth with mellow overtones of sweet berry fruit, a bite of bitterness suddenly cuts through, long, deep and lingering (4.5% alcohol)
Strong and malty brown ale, with some nutty and carmel overtones. American version is slightly drier and more bitter than the English counterpart (4.7% alcohol)
Strongbow Cider is medium sweet and medium drywith a pleasant apple aroma (4.5% alcohol)
A very pale to golden-colored lager beer with a well attenuated body and noble hop bitterness (5% alcohol)
Light larger, very low in malt flavor with a light and dry body (about 4.5% alcohol)
VIP Special
Served only from 1 pm to 2 pm, during the VIP hour.
