The storied German tradition of Oktoberfest makes its annual grand return, and Semiahmoo Resort Golf Spa is getting in on the fun.
On Saturday, October 10 from 1 to 5 p.m., participants can partake in dozens of beers from all around the world for Semiahmoo’s first-ever Oktoberfest celebration.
Suresh Rao, Semiahmoo’s food and beverage director, has imported some genuine German beers specifically for the event. Visitors can try authentic Oktoberfest brews such as Ayinger Privatbrauerei Bavarian Lager, Bitburger Premium Pilsner and Ayinger Brauweisse Bavarian Hefeweizen. A selection of local beers will be on tap from Boundary Bay Brewery, Chuckanut Brewing, Fremont Brewing and Leavenworth Brewing Company.
The menu will consist of authentic German cuisine designed to pair well with the selection of beers. Try treats like cheddar beer soup with crispy shallots, grilled Bavarian bratwurst and German potato salad, roasted garlic and herb spaetzle with foraged mushrooms and caramelized onions and a honeycrisp apple strudel for dessert.
For $25, participants get five beer tasters and tasting plates. For an additional $10, take home a souvenir Semiahmoo beer mug. The event will be held in an outdoor tent, so visitors should dress for crisp fall weather. Tickets are available at the door. For more information, visit semiahmoo.com.
