It's that time of the year again! Dust off your lederhosen, grab your favorite stein and meet us at the beach for the wildest Oktoberfest in San Diego!

The two-day event kicks off  with the NEW! OktoberStretch, a mini-YOGA+ Live Music festival within the OB Oktoberfest from noon to 6:00 p.m. on Friday October 6th. The grassy space at Abbott and Newport will be filled with fun yoga classes, games, and competitions, a chill area for meditation and breathwork,live music and drum circles, and conscientious vendors. (Learn more about OktoberStretch and register for yoga classes.) At 1:00 p.m., we'll kick off the live music in the 21+ beer garden.

$5 will get you into the beer garden - where you can enjoy some classic German brews (along with local favorites too).

On Saturday, we start bright and early with the 5th annual OB Brät Trot (2017 registration/details coming soon) at 9 a.m. All ages are invited to participate in the Brat Trot; registration is $25 per family (up to 6 participants) for the 2K Family Fun Run at 9 a.m. & $35 per person for the 5K Beach Run to follow at 10 a.m. Registration for the 5K Beach Run includes FREE entrance into the beer garden and 2 complimentary beers for runners 21+. Each Brat Trot run will be followed by a Drill Instructor workout on the beach.

Also on Saturday, there will be a German and local microbrew tasting benefiting the Warrior Foundation Freedom Station. The special tastings, dubbed “Poured with Courage,” are served by active and retired wounded service members. Tickets for the tasting will be available at OBOktoberfest.com.
