Oktoberfest 2020 Lager Release in Cans & Draft; German Food on the Deck, In The House and Takeout; Traditional German Music. All weekend long and then some…
We will remember 2020, right? “I predict that soon there will be a word to replace ‘surreal’,” said Ale House owner Rick Walton, “‘Cause ‘surreal’ just doesn’t cut it for what we are experiencing right now.” Nevertheless, people are starting to feel giddy in an Oktoberfest kind of way, with the cold crisp air and the energy that goes with it. “I’m feeling a little spunky myself.” Walton says, as he plans his indoor/deck/takeout Oktoberfest party. “This 2020 party will punctuate the first 15 Oktoberfests with an exclamation point and from here we move on to phase two of Moon Hill Brewing and more Gardner greatness. We may not party in the street this year, but we will party.”
The Ale House will open her doors at 11AM with oompah music playing and staff dressed as you expect, in traditional Oktoberfest sartorial splender. Our menu will have brats and sauerkraut, wiener schnitzel, pretzels and the bell of the ball, Moon Hill Brewing Co.’s 2020 OKTOBERFEST LAGER. Come, eat and drink and solve the world’s problems over a draft. For We shall never pass this way again.
Gardner Ale House is the only full-menu brewpub in both North Central Massachusetts and Worcester County. It is a family style pub and restaurant featuring fresh, bistro style food in an upscale setting. The brewery offers 14 or more distinctive, house made brews and continues to develop new recipes. There is always an interesting, new beer on tap at the Gardner Ale House.
At the very beginning of 2017, the Moon Hill Brewing Co., at the location of The Gardner Ale House (GAH), a popular brewpub, began distributing its beer outside the doors of the venerable ‘Ale House’. We are still located at the brewpub, but have a summer gig too at the Brew Barn on Red Apple Farm and are looking at one or two other interesting projects. Watch these pages for more!
