If you’re hosting an Oktoberfest party, you need to make sure to have one very important thing in abundance – BEER! In fact, there’s little else besides beer, some good food, and a few Oktoberfest Party Ideas to throw an amazing Oktoberfest theme party.
Make serving tasty bubbly beverages a little easier by setting up a Oktoberfest theme beer station. I came up with a simple one that my husband set up in the garage for our “haus”-warming party. While a cooler with beers might have sufficed, I wanted to add personal touches with personalized Oktoberfest Beer Bottle Labels and Oktoberfest Banners. Plus, I wanted everything to match our other Oktoberfest Party Invitations and Favors!
One of the highlights of our party was our specially brewed Oktoberfest beer! We brewed it a few months earlier at a DIY micro-brew place called Brew Kettle, and then we had personalized Oktoberfest Beer Bottle Labels printed for the oversized bottles. Even when stacked in large white tubs with other local brews, our special beer was a party favorite! Plus, the labels matched our Oktoberfest Invitations perfectly!
We had a few non-drinkers at our party too, so we made sure to put out some water bottles. Of course, they had to have personalized Oktoberfest Water Bottle Labels as well!
To finish off the beer station, we added one of our Oktoberfest Banners, which we personalized. Everything matched, from the beer labels to the banner - it looked fantastic!
Overall, the table was easy to put together and looked great. With almost 100 guests, the beer station worked logistically as well. We stored extra beer under the table (hidden by the table cloth), and just restocked throughout the party. You also might want to keep in mind a hot drink station, too. It was a chilly fall day when we threw our Oktoberfest party, and guests were glad that we also served coffee, hot apple cider, and tea.
Good luck planning your Oktoberfest beer station! Want to see more ideas from my Oktoberfest party? Check them out here:
