St. Benno and Herr Bock now welcome children to the festivities!!
welcome the Spring Beer with St. Benno and Herr Bock!
An announcement of the Turner’s St. Benno Fest of 1913 states: “This year St. Benno will solemnize the arrival of the new beer in the Löwenbräukeller of the Deutsche Haus”; now the Kellersaal of the Athenaeum. In 1913 those present were promised “a first taste of the wild, rich flavor of the Bock Bier.” Everyone was assured of the best in German culinary endeavors, the best of German Bier, and a festive evening of music and dancing.
Following the traditions of our founding families, St. Benno and his goat, Herr Bock, will officially tap the keg with the ceremonial chugging of 2 beers. Party and dance and then Get Your Yodel On with St. Benno in the yodel contest. Get your groove on with Polkamotion and party with Sun King Beer! and local craft beer tastings!
All proceeds from this fundraising event benefit the care and maintenance of the Historic Athenaeum.
