Prost! Oktoberfest Hits Downtown St. Cloud [VIDEO]
ST. CLOUD -- Downtown St. Cloud celebrated everything German at Beaver Island Brewing Company's Oktoberfest event on a beautiful Saturday afternoon.
The first-ever event was held in the parking lot behind Beaver Island Brewing and featured German food, music, games, and of course, beer.
"It's a great time to drink beer -- I know that sounds a little goofy, but what a wonderful event," says Nick Barth, co-founder of Beaver Island Brewing Company.
"This (first) year, we thought we'd just aim small and we sold out -- which is amazing -- but the idea was to bring the community together with the community brewery and have a great event."
Barth says they hope to grow Oktoberfest out a little bit more in its next year after a successful turnout in its inaugural event.
"It's been a beautiful day and we couldn't do it without the great beer, the great food, the great games, the great music, and of course, the great weather."
