Oktoberfest 2019 is a lot sooner than you think – and there’s so much to look forward to starting in September. Willkommen from Tulalip Resort Casino chefs as they put their own twists on the annual Bavarian VolksFest tradition with inspiring culinary creations.
Paired with a selection of Oktoberfest beers procured by Sommelier Tom Thompson, this Bavarian fun-fest is happening early – because just one day is never enough. The celebration is from September 2 through October 31, 2019.
Taste of Tulalip Oktoberfest menus draws from the original Munich Oktoberfest experience.
Get the fest started with The Draft Sports Bar and Grill’s Pork Schnitzel Bites for $9.00, which consists of tender pork tenderloin, lightly breaded and fried golden brown. Served with Mac and Jacks tarragon aioli, pineapple BBQ and stoneground mustard aioli sauce.
The Hotel Espresso and Carvery are offering a Bavarian Ham Sandwich for $8.95 that marries thinly sliced Bavarian ham on a fresh Bavarian pretzel roll with muenster cheese, dill pickles, sweet mayonnaise and stone ground mustard.
Blazing Paddles Stone Fired Pizza is featuring an Oktoberfest Calzone for $9.50 with smoked bratwurst, three premium kinds of cheese, garlic parmesan with whole grain mustard sauce, onion, green apples, and arugula folded into a calzone. This gericht (dish) is so gut (good) there are no exceptions – but why would there be?
If Bavarian Wiener Schnitzel is in the cards, travel over to Cedars Café for pork cutlets with a golden brown panko crust, served with house-made sweet and sour bacon slaw, lemon beurre blanc and parsley mashed potatoes and crispy onion straws for $15.95.
Indulge in a savory Feast of Sausages with Black Forest Ham and cabbage at Eagles Buffet. Creamed sauerkraut, braised red cabbage, beer-braised bratwurst and onions, Bavarian pretzels with mustard sauce await Oktoberfest lovers.
Blackfish Wild Salmon Grill & Bar is tanzen (dancing) with Beer and Bratwurst Mussels for $14.00. This dish includes Mussels steamed with Ayinger German beer, bratwurst, Napa cabbage, and whole grain mustard.
For dessert, Cedars Café is offering up a Black Forrest Sundae for $6.95 – consisting of chocolate linzer cookie base with three scoops of Snoqualmie Gourmet ice cream, dark chocolate sauce, sour cherry compote, whipped cream and chocolate shavings. Blackfish Wild Salmon Grill & Bar has their Bee Sting dessert that one must try to believe! It’s $8.00 and combines two classic German desserts: Fried Brioche Donut, filled with honey pastry cream, with sautéed Granny Smith apples, and a honey-almond tuile.
Thompson’s team will serve a grand selection of imported and local Oktoberfest beers from noteworthy breweries to complete the Bavarian celebration.
Oktoberfest 2019 Pours
The Draft Sports Bar & Grill – Dru Bru Oktoberfest, Snoqualmie Pass, WA
A light-bodied, orange-colored, session ale with soft, elegant German Malt flavors. Heaps of Vienna Malt and German noble hops create a toasty, German-inspired light-bodied black ale dominated by roasty, burnt caramel and toffee notes. Northwest hops add a non-traditional citrus and resin character to result in a rich, yet surprisingly light-bodied and smooth dark.
Destination Lounge – Erdinger Oktoberfest, Germany
But this isn’t just any beer. This is a beverage brewed from pure water, the best quality malt and perfect hops. Brewed by Hofbräu München, the Oktoberfestbier is a full-bodied lager known for its clean, crisp edge and ability to get any party started.
Blazing Paddles, Cedars Cafe, Eagles Buffet and Gaming Floor – Silver City Brewing Oktoberfest, Bremerton, WA
Celebrate the season with tradition and authenticity. This classic amber lager presents rich malty sweetness and spicy hop character.
Blackfish Wild Salmon Grill & Bar – ‘Tomtoberfest’ Oktoberfest, Georgetown Brewing, Seattle, WA
While Oktoberfest beers have been trending lighter over the years, Tom brewed this beer to be closer to the original Oktoberfest style. A malt-forward lager with caramel and toasted malt flavors, Tomtoberfest is highly carbonated and effervescent with sweet aroma but a dry finish. Light hop aroma and flavor add to the crispness of the beer without inhibiting the malt profile.
Canoes Cabaret – Hacker Pschorr Oktoberfest, München, Germany
This Oktoberfest beer is slow-roasted with Bavarian barley. It is then caramelized to a rich, red amber color and combined with the purest spring waters from the Alps. It is brewed with exclusive yeast and the finest Hallertau hops. It has a malty sweet and toasty flavor on the palate.
“Oktoberfest is always one of my favorite times of the year! It’s the fest where millions of people gather to celebrate Bavarian tradition – whether that be local essen (food), bier (beer) or simply trying out a new kreation (creation),” said Executive Chef Perry Mascitti. “Bring your freunde (friends) and familie (family) to our annual event that is all Bavarian – all the time!”
Thompson and Mascitti invite guests to join in the fun by raising a beer and toasting “Feierst Oktoberfest” from September 2 through October 31, 2019. For more information about Oktoberfest 2019, visit Tulalip Resort Casino.
