Oktoberfest: Coming Soon

Dubbed "the area's most authentic," we will be serving a variety of tasty German favorites on our Oktoberfest plate: 
  • kassler ripschen (smoked pork chop)
  • eisben mit sauerkraut (pork hocks with sauerkraut)
  • leberkaese (German veal loaf)
  • knackwurst (German garlic sausage)
  • bratwurst (mild white veal sausage)
  • sauerkraut, red cabbage, and german potato salad
And what Oktoberfest would be complete without some authentic beers:
  • Bitburger Pilsener (the #1 draft beer in Germany)
  • Hofbrauhaus Hefeweizen Beer
  • Hofbrauhaus Oktoberfest Beer

We will also offer a wurstsalat salad and housemade apple strudel with Sisler's french vanilla ice cream. 
Supplies are definitely limited. Stop out and sample our German fare after 4 pm each night, beginning Sunday, September 22.  You've got a week (maybe more) to try out this authentic German plate. So come in early, and come often - before it's gone!

A bit more background on this special food event:
Oktoberfest is known as the largest beer festival in the world. Dating back to Munich, Germany on October 12th, 1810, the 5-day event was originally staged to celebrate the marriage of the Bavarian Crown Prince Ludwig and Princess Therese of Saxony Hildburghausen.
Though the official fest in Germany boasts more than 6 million visitors a year who help consume more than 1 million gallons of beer, we at the Uptown are proud to bring a slice of German history and festivities to the Illinois Valley.
