Philadelphia, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/11/2013 -- On Saturday, September 21, celebrate the beginning of Germany’s famed Oktoberfest with seasonal food specials and German-style craft beers at The Best “Wurst” Saturday Ever hosted by City Tap House, a restaurant in Philly. Beginning at 1 p.m., the kitchen will prepare and serve an extended menu of Bavarian fare, while many of the bar’s 60 taps will be dedicated to both local and world beers brewed in honor of the annual suds festival. Both food and beer will be available all day and night on a “pay-as-you-go” basis, and TJ Kong & the Atomic Bomb will provide live musical entertainment.
“There are so many tremendous imported German beers and great versions of German styles produced locally this year, we felt compelled to host our first Oktoberfest,” says beer steward Andy Farrell, who heads the 60-tap beer program at City Tap House, Philadelphia’s largest. “Lots of beer with chef-crafted pairings and homemade sausages sounds like a great afternoon to us.”
Once the Oktoberfest brews have drained, the University City Restaurant will gear up for the Third Annual and highly anticipated “Pumpkin Smash” event. Pumpkin Smash features over 30 pumpkin beers on tap, including some rare and “never-before-seen-in Philly” brews from co-host Elysian Brewing. The event kicks off on Sunday, October 13th at 1pm, includes live music from MJ Trio and a Pumpkin Pie Eating Contest in addition to the plethora of Pumpkin brews on tap.
The restaurant in Philly is not only known for festive monthly events but also offers many reasons to enjoy every day of the week. From themed Daily Suppers like the “Weekly Roast” every Wednesday to Happy Hour Specials at the bar, the University City Restaurant has something for everyone.
