Several participating local, regional and national breweries include Starr Hill, Mad Fox, Fair Winds, Hellbender, Ocelot, Ballast Point, Firestone Walker, Blue Mountain, Green Flash, Parkway, Schlafly, St. George, Terrapin, New District, Adroit Theory, Avery and Hardywood.

Beer lovers can dance to live Alpine folk music as they taste select handcrafted beers and snack on authentic German cuisine from numerous food tents and a variety of Shirlington Village eateries. Capitol City Brewing Company will also serve traditional German favorites including bratwurst, sauerkraut and the signature fresh soft pretzels.
The $30 admission ticket for beer drinkers includes an official Oktoberfest wristband, a Capitol City branded tasting glass and 10 drink tickets.
