Description

A riverside celebration of artisan beer and community in the White Mountains

Why fly to Munich when a short drive to the White Mountains offers a regional take on an authentic celebration, kicking off the fall color season? Schilling Beer Co. presents The Ammonoosuc Oktoberfest on the edge of beautiful downtown Littleton, NH, annually rated as one of the best small towns in America. Here guests will enjoy a one-of-a-kind celebration which fuses Bavarian traditions with a modern twist and 15 of the finest craft breweries in the U.S.

True to Oktoberfest tradition, The Ammonoosuc Oktoberfest offers a spirited beer tent featuring full pours from select Northeastern breweries, as well as a couple guest breweries from the Midwest and West Coast. Guests will be treated to pig roasts and delicious Bavarian-inspired foods from Northern New England’s best purveyors, along with live music, lawn games and exciting surprises located across the Ammonoosuc River from the grist mill housing Schilling, accessible via covered footbridge. Children are welcome at the daytime celebration, which offers activities for the whole family. After dark, the bands on the music stage kick it up a notch and everyone will be singing “Ein Prosit” around the firepit before the night is out! General Admission includes one beer ticket.*

For those who want the ultimate in Oktoberfest immersive experiences, we offer a weekend VIP pass which includes early access to the session of your choice, 5 beer tickets, entrance to the warm and cozy Bavarian-style VIP tent where tasty bites and full pours of special reserve beers are included. Guests will also take home a special gift from the brewery. The VIP Pass also gets you an invitation to the private Brewer’s Dinner on Friday night where you'll dine on a delicious multi-course meal cooked by renowned chef, Adam Alderin, of the Beal House.

All of these activities will take place against the backdrop of Littleton’s art festival weekend.
