It’s Oktoberfest Season.
Join in on the fun!

Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany officially kicks off on September 20th and here in Canada we will be celebrating this great holiday of beer until the end of October. That’s more than 40 days of beer-filled fun! You can roll out the barrel three ways….

keep the stein

Order an authentic ceramic German Stein and
KEEP THE STEIN.

We’ve created an original Steam Whistle ceramic stein decorated with vignettes of all that Oktoberfest has to offer: beer, kegs, pretzels, fräuleins in dirndls, and lederhosen-clad men hoisting steins. Get yours at hundreds of bars and restaurants, while quantities last!
