Olympia Provisions is officially celebrating the Bavarian tradition of Oktoberfest! On September 22nd (the official launch of Oktoberfest in Germany), Olympia Provisions and Rosenstadt will pay homage to the roots and traditions of Germanic food and beer in an all-out, one day festival.
The celebration will highlight German favorites from the menu including bratwursts, frankfurters and hand-rolled pretzels, as well a massive skillet of Choucroute Garnie which will be portioned and charged by the pound. The Rosenstadt Brewers are kicking off the day with an official “Anstich” (ceremonial tapping) of the 2018 Rosenstadt Festbier: a malt forward rich beer with aromas of almonds, fresh bread, golden raisins, and dried fruit balanced with spicy, floral noble hops. The patio at Olympia Provisions Public House will be a classic tented biergarten with rows of tables for friends and families to join in the celebration. The festival will have a costume contest to find the best Lederhosen in Oregon, a Hammerschlagen (“Striking Hammer”), and a Stein Holding Tournament. Steins will be pre-sold for $12 or for $20 day of and include the first fill up of the Festbier.

ABOUT OLYMPIA PROVISIONS:
Olympia Provisions, an authentic and house-made charcuterie and meats company based in Portland, Oregon, began as Oregon’s first USDA-certified salumeria and now offers food-lovers six Portland restaurant locations and online product availability nationwide. Salumist and owner, Elias Cairo, grew up first generation Greek-American, with a father who made charcuterie at home. After five years in Switzerland under master chef Annegret Schlumpf, Cairo completed a chef apprenticeship. Utilizing the finest ingredients, he developed his skills and passion for making charcuterie, and the experience affirmed his beliefs – handmade is better. Back in Portland, Cairo set out to approach the craft of charcuterie with purity and patience, recreating a nearly extinct old-world technique that’s seldom seen in America.
