As you head out to Oktoberfest Zinzinnati this weekend, don’t forget that the Moerlein Lager House Überdrome is open tonight from 5PM to 12AM and Saturday from 1PM to 12AM.
We’ve attended the past two years and had tons of fun. Unlike past years, admission is free to anyone who would like to attend. Just pay for the beer and food you want.
Opening ceremony starts at 5:30 PM tonight and this year’s Buergermeister is Don Heinrich Tolzmann. As the Moerlein beer baron Greg Hardman puts it, “It’s the alternative Oktoberfest for people who want the Munich feel!”
Here’s more information from the Überdrome event page on Facebook:
