Following Oktoberfest tradition in Germany, Doral’s Mayor will tap the first cask. Guests present at time of tapping, and have brought a donation for hurricane victims, will receive a free half-liter of The Tank’s best-selling beer, The Freedom Tower Amber Ale.
On Sunday, September 17, The Tank Brewing Co., one of Miami’s hometown craft beer brewers, will be hosting its first annual Oktoberfest. As German tradition has it, Oktoberfest officially starts when the mayor taps the first cask, declaring “O’zapft is!” (German) or “It’s tapped!” City of Doral Mayor J.C. Bermúdez will be the guest of honor and will officially kick-off Oktoberfest at The Tank.
The Tank has also partnered with Imperial Freight Brokers Inc. and Brokers Cartage Company to transport all items donated since the onset of Hurricane Irma to The Florida Keys for relief efforts. They are kindly asking all attendees to bring items such as water, non-perishable food, ice, toiletries, flashlights, batteries, first-aid kits, baby food, diapers and pet food to assist with Hurricane Irma relief efforts.
At the Oktoberfest celebration, The Tank will be introducing its newest brew, the Oktoberfest-Märzen along with other German-style beers. A medium-bodied amber lager, the Märzen is full-flavored with a dry finish that keeps it drinkable by the liter. The name stems from historical times when this beer would have been brewed in March and stored until Oktoberfest. Times may have changed, but The Tank’s brewers still make it a point to lager the Oktoberfest-Märzen for at least 12 weeks, resulting in an exceptionally smooth beer.
Founded by Carlos Padron with brewers Matt Weintraub and Moh Saade, Miami-based The Tank Brewing Company embodies a homegrown passion for brewing honest, expertly-crafted artisanal beer using only the finest ingredients from mash to tap: from the purity of the water to the extensive care that is taken in curating its ingredients. Every drop, every step of the process, and every detail are tended to with pure love of beer in mind which can be tasted in every sip. The Tank’s popular core beers La Finca Miami, Freedom Tower Amber and El Farito IPA were all inspired by the brewers’ love for their hometown, Miami.
The Tank is located at 5100 NW 72nd Ave, Miami, FL.
