Video: Oktoberfest Beer Tasting Party Ideas

by Jessica Hill

Looking for a reason to have a fun themed party this fall? Celebrate Oktoberfest! Oktoberfest is a centuries-old German tradition that celebrates good food, good beer, and good company. Sounds like a perfect party to me! Grab a beer tasting party kit from Party City to create a fun activity for your guests.

  • Beer Tasting Buffet Table Decorating Kit 15pc
  • Cheers & Beers Table Cover
  • Cheers & Beers Dessert Plates
  • Cheers & Beers Beverage Napkins
  • Gold Flannel-Backed Vinyl Tablecloth
  • White Plastic Long Rectangular Platter

The Beer Tasting Table Decorating Kit not only includes cute themed signs and banners, it also includes everything you need for a beer tasting, minus the beer, of course. Make sure you have 4 different styles of beer for your guests to sample. To keep the Oktoberfest theme running, try to pick beer that was brewed in Germany!

Make sure you have plenty of delicious snacks for your guests to eat. Large pretzels are a must for any Oktoberfest party. Serve them with a bit of German mustard for the full experience.

I also like to put together a small charcuterie board with meat, sausage, nuts, and a few varieties of cheese. Your guests can fill their Cheers & Beers plate with all their favorites while they make notes on the delicious beer. 

Oktoberfest is a wonderful reason to get together with friends in the fall, and you don’t have to spend a ton of money to have a fantastic time!
