DIY Oktoberfest Party

Every year, over 6 million people gather in Munich for Oktoberfest to celebrate German history and, of course, drink beer. Many cities across the world throw their own Oktoberfests — why not join in on the fun with a DIY Oktoberfest party? You don’t have to leave home to get a taste of the best German-style beer and cuisine.

Can’t have an Oktoberfest party without a total classic — soft pretzels! Gather for Bread shows how to make perfect-for-dipping German Soft Pretzel Sticks.


Cake ‘n’ Knife‘s tempting Trio of Beer Cheese Dips are a delicious companion for warm soft pretzels.


For slightly fancier fare that still keeps in theme, try Half Baked Harvest‘s gorgeous Brie and Cheddar Apple Beer Soup. All the best flavors of fall (plus beer) are topped off with a sweet cinnamon-pecan oat crumble.


Ditch the expected and serve brats inside a grilled cheese! I am a Food Blog shows you how with this fabulous Bratwurst Grilled Cheese.


The ultimate comfort food gets a Oktoberfest-appropriate twist: Easy Beer Mac and Cheese from How Sweet It Is will be a sure-fire favorite.


Why pick one German food when you can have three at once? In Sock Monkey Slippers shows how to combine Oktoberfest favorites in these Bratwurst and Sauerkraut Pretzel Bites.


Not big on plain old pints? Oh, Sweet Joy! shows you how to dress up your ale with this Pumpkin Beer Cocktail.


Don’t leave dessert out of your party plans. Choose your favorite German beer to add to these jaw-dropping cookie bars. Life, Love and Sugar shows you how to make Bacon, Beer, and Potato Chip Cookie Bars that are sure to wow guests.


For a more traditional take on dessert that still includes a festive splash of beer, The Gouda Life has a beautiful Maple Porter Chocolate Cake.

With so much delicious inspiration, I can’t wait to start sampling recipes and brews. Happy Oktoberfest!
