Service Brewing Company, a veteran-owned and operated craft brewery, will kickoff the official start of Germany’s largest beer festival on Saturday, September 19 with a keg tap, grilling of brats and sauerkraut and raffles every 30 minutes, all with music by DJ Jose Ray.
In true tradition of the Oktoberfest celebration, at exactly 12 p.m., Service will tap the first barrel of their fall seasonal, Teufel Hunden, an Oktoberfest-style Märzen. This classic German lager holds a deep copper hue, a toasted malt aroma and a clean dry finish. It will be a limited release brew in celebration of the upcoming fall season.
Proceeds for the event will also be the kickoff fundraiser for SBC’s fall charity, The Raider Project, a non-profit that connects MARSOC/USMC combat veterans with other veterans to help them smoothly, peacefully and successfully transition into the private sector.
During the event, CEO Kevin Ryan, will man the grill serving his infamous brats and sauerkraut for in-kind donations to go towards Raider Project. Other highlights include DJ Jose Ray spinning vinyl until 5 p.m. and a raffle of special Service gifts every 30 minutes.
Dedicated to honoring those that have put their lives at risk and their country and community first, Service Brewing donates a portion of their revenue to assist charities that support military service. Through a grassroots effort, Service is giving back to those that have served by crafting authentic American made beers for both the curious and experienced consumer.
