2nd Annual Smoketoberfest Hits the Northwest Suburbs on October 6

Arlington Heights, Ill., September 17, 2018 – Grab your Lederhosen and head to Rack House’s 2nd Annual Smoketoberfest on Saturday, October 6 from 1-5 p.m! The restaurant’s parking lot and Beer Garden will “haus” the suburbs’ most festive and authentic all-day Oktoberfest celebration this side of Munich.

One of the most popular activities during Oktoberfest is Stein Hoisting and Smoketoberfest attendees are invited to compete! Entrants must hold a liter stein filled with liquid by a straight ninety-degree arm and once their elbow bends, spills or drops the stein the entrant loses. The competition begins at 4 p.m!

Revelers can say ‘prost’ with $5 drafts of Sam Adams Octoberfest, Hofbrau, Two Brother’s Atom Smasher and Main Street Brewing Off Duty.

Executive Chef Bryant Anderson will put his spin on Oktoberfest grub including Chef Martin’s Old World Kasekrainer and Knackwurst Sausages, Pulled Pork Sandwiches, Mac & Cheese with smoked cheddar, BBQ Kettle Chips and Giant Pretzels. Food items will range from $5-10 each. Guests can also feast their eyes on the Whole Smoked Hickory Pig Roast, rubbed down with Rack House’s signature seasonings and slow smoked for over 24-hours.

From 2-5 p.m., Smoketoberfest will be rockin’ with a live band perfect for toe tapping, singing or dancing the polka.

Guests of all ages can see, touch and explore a variety of U.S. Army vehicles on display and have the chance to meet and mingle with the hometown heroes. Rack House supports our troops!

Attendees will have the chance to win raffle and door prizes including Rack House’s homemade BBQ sauces, gift cards and more!
