Cruz Blanca Oktoberfest Event



Cruz Blanca Oktoberfest Event

Cruz Blanca is hosting a fun event this weekend in the Fulton Market District!

FUN FACT: Germany first introduced beer into Mexico in the 1800s and the traditional German lager has had the largest influence on Mexican beer through the ages – the very same German lagers that are consumed in abundance during Oktoberfest.

To celebrate the merging of these two great cultures, Cruz Blanca is hosting Das Bueno Oktoberfest on Saturday, October 1 from 12pm – 4pm.

Rick Bayless’s Das Bueno Oktoberfest
What: Cruz Blanca is celebrating Germany (the country that brought beer to Mexico) with live Mexican-Polka music, Strasbourg bretzels by La Fournette, sausage sticks by West Loop Salumi and a special Bratwurst Taco created by Rick Bayless.
Where: Cruz Blanca, 904 W. Randolph Street
When: Saturday, October 1 from 12pm – 4pm
Tickets: $20 includes entry, a custom made beer stein, 1 liter of beer and 1 bretzel
