With the arrival of Fall comes the familiar football fanfare and the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors as the weather cools down, making way for grilling and sipping on cider, while cheering on your alma mater. This is the scene taking place on our new patio, covered by two large awnings, and surrounded by tin planters of yellow mums and lush, green shrubs. The patio, which can be accessed through the outside gate, regular taproom door, or through the giant garage door that reaches to the industrial-style ceiling, has just been added to the entertainment and event space options and has quickly become a guest and staff favorite as a spot to take a quick break, sit down for a few beers, entertain friends, and watch your favorite sporting event.
The patio has opened at the perfect time as the weather begins to cool down from a sweltering 95 degrees, to breezy afternoons that call for a cold beer and good conversation. Recently there has been College Football watch parties, where Rob fires up the grill and serves some of his famous wings, while friends gather around the large patio tables. It’s a private, peaceful spot under twinkling string lights, for groups large and small to keep up with the latest sporting event on a flat-screen TV or to just relax at the end of a long workday. However, this space is for more than just watching the big games of the weekend— it’s available for private parties, reunions, business meetings, and more. Local restaurants help cater parties, making the event an easy set up and a delicious treat for guests in a unique setting.
Soon the patio will be bustling with German food, beer, wine, and cider as we prepare for Shoals Oktoberfest, which begins on Thursday, October 6th with cocktails and appetizers served on the patio to kick off the Shoals Oktoberfest German Beer & Wine Dinner hosted by the University of North Alabama Culinary Arts Program. The night will continue in the Taproom with dinner and dessert– unique creations by talented local students. Guests will have the opportunity to sip on their favorite beverage and munch on specialty food pairings during a casual evening with friends celebrating a 100-year-old German tradition and indulging in the art and talent of UNA students. The party will continue throughout the weekend with Artoberfest on Friday, October 7th, which features displays by local artists and Wine, Cheese, and Paint, OH MY! The three-day event will conclude on Saturday, October 8th with Goodwill Games, live music, great food, and plenty of beer on the patio in what will be a memorable weekend for the whole family.
This exciting Oktoberfest street party will offer brats, bbq, and brisket from Smitty’s
SmokeShack, while live music floats through the air, and specialty German beer will be filled to the brim in large steins. Guests will be able to test their strength in the Goodwill Games with a stein hoisting contest, beer relay, grain sack toss, and a cornhole tournament; or relax in the VIP Sports Pavilion and catch up on their favorite football game on the big screen TVs. And while there will be plenty of beer and cider for the adults, we haven’t forgotten the kids during this family-friendly event, with free face painting, a balloon artist, and bounce houses available for the children all day long.
The children’s activities and vendors will be located in front of the brewery on College St, while our new patio will be in full swing with live music, the Goodwill Games, and shaded areas to catch up on football, drink beer, and hang out with friends. We want our patio to be your patio—so gather your friends, grab a beer and settle down for a good time—we’re happy to accommodate a variety of events with our outdoor space, indoor Taproom, and back bar for special events.
