Presenting the 2017 Ammonoosuc Oktoberfest!
The 2017 Ammonoosuc Oktoberfest (Sept. 22-23): A riverside celebration of artisan beer and community in the White Mountains
When “world-class beer,” “culinary delicacies” and “mountains in the fall” are discussed in the same breath, Bavaria comes to mind. But here in the White Mountains, along a trout stream that meanders through one of the most pleasant small towns in the country, a group of great brewers and local food purveyors have gotten together to create their own intimate celebration of family, community and artisan excellence—and you’re invited. No plane tickets required!
Schilling Beer Co. presents The Ammonoosuc Oktoberfest on the banks of the Ammonoosuc River in beautiful downtown Littleton, NH—annually touted as one of America’s best small towns. Here guests will enjoy a one-of-a-kind celebration that fuses Bavarian traditions with a modern twist, bringing together approximately 15 world-class breweries and local foods in an incomparable setting.
True to Oktoberfest tradition, The Ammonoosuc Oktoberfest offers a spirited beer tent featuring full pours from premier Northeastern and Midwestern brewers. Beers will range from wild ales to traditional European-inspired lagers. Guests will be treated to pig roasts and delicious Bavarian-inspired foods from Northern New England’s best purveyors, along with live music, lawn games and other exciting surprises.
The venue will be on the riverside green located directly across the Ammonoosuc River from Schilling, accessible via covered footbridge (where the Littleton Farmers Market is held). A parking map will be made available shortly. Children are welcome during the daytime celebration, which offers activities for the whole family. After dark, the bands on the music stage will kick it up a notch and everyone will be singing “Ein Prosit” around the firepit before the night is out! General Admission includes one beer ticket.*
The VIP Experience
For those who want the ultimate in Oktoberfest immersive experiences, we offer a weekend VIP pass that includes a ticket to the exclusive Brewers’ Dinner on Friday night.

The VIP pass also includes early access to the session of their choice, 5 beer tickets, entrance to the warm and cozy Bavarian-style VIP tent where tasty bites and full pours of special reserve beers are included.
