Rain or shine, Oktoberfest served the steins

The weekend brought a taste of Germany to Niagara-on-the-Lake. 

Celebrators of the annual Oktoberfest were at the Exchange Brewery on Saturday to enjoy a day filled with steins of beer, pretzels, sausages and more.

The brewery in Old Town hosts an Oktoberfest celebration every year.

Its special Oktoberfest brew, Dunkel Weiss, also hit shelves for the season, featuring notes of banana bread and clove. 

If beer wasn’t exactly your speed, Ironwood Cider House offered a different approach to the Oktoberfest, including live music and eats.

Though the rain put a damper on the planned cornhole tournament, the music moved indoors and guests could still enjoy the sounds of Feverish Lemons, Taylor Laslo and Caitlin Miller throughout the weekend.

The venue also launched the first of its yearly collectable steins, so guests are urged to return next Oktoberfest and grow their collection.
