Oktoberfest Biergarten at Olde Magoun's Saloon
Locals who can’t make it to the beer tent in Munich this fall can get a taste of a true Oktoberfest with the traveling Paulaner Biergarten, which will make a stop at Olde Magoun’s Saloon in Somerville on Saturday, September 15 from noon until 6 p.m. Patrons can enjoy Paulaner’s portable biergarten and enjoy the crisp fall air with six kinds of Paulaner beer on tap, including their Oktoberfest Marzen and Weisen and their Lager ‘Pils Hefeweisen and Salvador Beers. Olde Magoun’s will be grilling traditional Oktoberfest food to add to the ambience.
The Paulaner Biergarten is part of a two-month Oktoberfest celebration hosted by Olde Magoun’s Saloon. The event will feature Paulaner German beers on tap and German festival food ouside, including Bratwurst, Knockwurst, pretzels, cider-glazed cabbage, warm German potato salad, and ale-braised sauerkraut. A full Oktoberfest menu and eight additional German craft beers are available inside the restaurant, with dishes like Obatzda (homemade Bavarian cheese spread served with crusty bread), Ruben Knockwurst, Jagerschnitzel (pork cutlets with mushroom gravy), Bavarian Stew, a Huas Wurst plate featuring bratwurst, knockwurst, weisswurst, sauerkraut and warm German Potato Salad, and more. A full menu is available online.
More About Olde Magoun's Saloon
This pub is as dark as a Guinness. Inside, regulars are perched on the bar stools hunched over their glasses. Despite the somber lighting, the atmosphere is lively and Olde Magouns is no dive bar; it is very clean, lacking in intimidating machismo. Don't worry, the bartenders won't scoff if you order that fuzzy navel. The staff are talkative as they weave between the tall comfortable booths and wooden tables, reflecting the mirrors and posters on the walls. The kitchen is open late and dinner is quite popular here.
