It’s fall in Dunedin, Florida, and that means it’s time to explore the seasonal brews during the many Oktoberfest events going on around town. If you’re staying with us at Beso Del Sol Resort this fall, you’ll have no shortage of opportunities to grab a beer.
Cigar City Beer Runs (Saturday, September 27)
Take part in the seventh annual Oktoberfest 10K, 5K or 1-mile timed race, and enjoy a cold beer as the Black Honkey’s play at the finish line. There’s no better way to spend a Saturday. Registration is $45-$55 and includes free beer, German food and admission to the concert. The first race begins at 4:00 p.m.
Oktobeerfest at Dunedin Brewery (October 2-5)
Hop on down to the Dunedin Brewery for German food, live music and some of the most unique concoctions you’ll find this season. Their menu will feature new beers each day, each with its own unique fall flavor:
Thursday: Jacki Bones – Pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla beans.
Friday: Florida Common – Orange peel and pineapple.
Saturday: Midnight Sextant – A Baltic porter.
Sunday: Batch #1000 – An imperial brown ale.
And each night will feature live musical acts, which will include Kool Keith, Ghost Owl and Jimkata.
Oktoberfest in Pinellas Park (September 26-27, 4:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.)
For a truly authentic experience, the German American Society is putting on their largest event of the year. Their version of Oktoberfest will feature oopah music, schuhplattler, imported beers and homemade German food. Admission is $6 (children 12 and under are free), parking is free and the experience is priceless.
Florida may not have the changing leaves of fall, but we can still celebrate the season! If you love beer, it’s a great time to stay at Beso Del Sol Resort!
