SideDoor's Oktoberfest Tap Takeover and Porktoberfest

SideDoor’s fall tradition of fine swine and craft brews returns. Featuring a variety of delicious dishes along with a variety of traditional German and craft beers to showcase the fall season’s most delectable flavors.

Through October 6, SideDoor’s taps will be taken over by a selection of Oktoberfest inspired, German-style beers. The tap lineup will showcase AleSchmidt Oktoberfest, a German-style Märzen lager by AleSmith Brewing Company and much more. Enjoy favorite Bavarian biers with a special menu of traditional German dishes like schnitzel, wurst and strudel courtesy of Executive Chef Alejandra Padilla.

On Friday, October 11 at 6:30 p.m., SideDoor welcomes guests to experience the 8th annual Porktoberfest in the restaurant’s beautiful Backyard and Patio area. A four-course, plated, pork-centric meal will be expertly paired with a unique brew from the exclusive lineup at Russian River Brewing Company including Blind Pig, a world class hoppy American IPA, Temptation, a sour blonde ale aged in Chardonnay barrels and Pliny the Elder, a very well balanced American Imperial IPA.
