Ursa Minor brings food, beer and goats back with Oktoberfest

German culture and activities took over Ursa Minor Brewing this weekend in Duluth. Oktoberfest kicked off Thursday and is wrapping up Sunday, September 25th at 10 PM.

“It’s a great celebration of end of summer, with a dark German lager. And each day kind of has its own twist and theme, and it’s a free event to the public. We have music all day long and fun activities,” says Ben Hugus, founder of Oktoberfest.

Oktoberfest proves to be a day for community and people from everywhere to come out and enjoy a good time. The event allowed patrons to stop by for a free brewery tour, participate in a stein holding contest, and even pet some goats. Hugus expressed it was of great importance to bring together community and celebrate the end of the summer season.

“Today is Family Day. So we’ve got our farmers. And we’ve got some goats here in the corner which are amazing. And then we’ve got all sorts of carnival games. It’s just all about everyone getting together and just, you know, reminiscing about what they did this summer and kind of getting ready for the winter.”
