San Diego's Only Beach side Oktoberfest

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 at 4:20 Friday afternoon with 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 in 2016, we started bright and early with the 5th annual OB Brät Trot at 9 a.m. All ages were 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. & $30 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 was be followed by a Drill Instructor workout on the beach.

NEW! to the event in 2016, there was a German and local microbrew tasting on Saturday benefiting the Warrior Foundation Freedom Station. The special tastings dubbed “Poured with Courage” were served by active and retired wounded service members. Tickets for the tasting were available at OBOktoberfest.com.
