Oktoberfest in Tremont

With German music, homemade pretzels and craft beer at Tremont Taphouse on Saturday, you may think you've teleported to Germany. But don't worry, you're still in Cleveland and have found yourself in the middle of Oktoberfest in Tremont.

Tremont Taphouse is welcoming the fall season by hosting its own Oktoberfest celebration this Saturday. The event will include live music by the German Music Society brass band, housemade schnitzel, Weisswurt and potato pancakes, and a large selection of Oktoberfest beers served in boot-shaped mugs. The OSU vs. Wisconsin game kicks off at 8 p.m., making Tremont Taphouse the perfect location to watch the game.

Tremont Taphouse, an unassuming brick building in the heart of Tremont, has already made a name for itself in Northeast Ohio by serving delicious and unique entrees. If the food isn't enough to bring you in, this gastropub also offers 48 microbrews on draft and an assortment of craft bottled beers.

There is a $5 cover for this event.

Oktoberfest in Tremont hours:
Saturday, Sept. 28 from 5 p.m.-2 a.m.
