Get a taste of the Bavarian Alps right here at Loon Mountain during White Mountain Oktoberfest, the region's largest celebration of German food, drink, and music. This two-day festival perfectly coincides with fall foliage season, so you'll enjoy beer and brats alongside stunning views of New Hampshire's White Mountains.

All weekend long, an Oompah band will provide the soundtrack to a stein-hoisting contest, keg toss, and kids' activities–including a root beer keg toss. It's the perfect chance to reconnect with old friends and make new ones during the weekend's full lineup of activities and entertainment. Prost!

Weekend Activities

Indoor/Outdoor Beer Garden
Adults will enjoy a range of seasonal beers from Samuel Adams at an indoor/outdoor beer garden. In addition to sampling Samuel Adams classics like Oktoberfest and New England IPA and Sam '76, guests can also try several limited-release brews from Samuel Adams. Shandies and ciders from Traveler Beer Co., Angry Orchard, and Truly Spiked & Sparkling will also be available. TVs both inside and out will be playing the weekend's big games, so you won't have to miss out on any of the action.

Beer College with Samuel Adams
Students who enroll in this prestigious institution of hoppier learning will ride the Gondola to the summit of Loon Peak, where they'll soak up beer knowledge from the professionals at Samuel Adams. They'll taste and smell the fresh ingredients that make a good beer, and even learn some brewing secrets. The class costs $30 per person and enrollment is limited to 30 students, ages 21+.

Live Music
The hills will be alive with the sound of Oompah! Guests will clap along and dance to the Alpiner Oompah band as they play polkas, waltzes, and other German-style favorites.

Fun & Games
White Mountain Oktoberfest wouldn't be the same without a full lineup of fun games and activities for all ages. Adults ages 21+ will flex their forearms during the Samuel Adams Stein Hoisting contest, the Stein Carryin', Keg Rollin' Relay Race, and the weekend's marquee event, the Keg Toss. Kids can also get in on the action with the Root Beer Keg Toss and Family Sack Race.

Mountaintop Yoga
Load the Gondola Skyride and spend the morning at the summit of Loon Peak, where stunning views of the White Mountains in peak foliage will inspire a special hour-long yoga session. Sessions are offered at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday, and each session is limited to 30 participants.
