Southern Brooklyn celebrated Oktoberfest at the Aviator Sports and Events Center on Oct. 19, where beer-lovers enjoyed drink specials, German delicacies, drinking games, and an open bar that lasted for two hours.
“It was beautiful outside,” said Danielle Tammaro. “And the beer was great.”
Brooklyn had the taste for beer on Saturday, and Aviator delivered, courtesy of sponsor Sam Adams, with drink specials that made drinking in New York City affordable, if only for the day.
Patrons had the opportunity to buy a special 24-ounce cup for $10, which could be refilled for the price of a normal-sized drink at twice the value.
There were plenty of drinking challenges to keep everybody occupied, and an older generation of drinkers were introduced to newer games like beer pong, and younger drinkers took part in ancient challenges, like raise the stein, where a row of drinkers struggle to hold roughly a liter of beer with an outstretched arm.
It wasn’t all just drinking at Aviator, though, the sports center had some good eats straight out of the Fatherland, with dishes including beef stew, bratwurst, and wienerschnitzel to keep patrons’ bellies full.
