Durham Co-Op will host the 3rd Annual Junetoberfest Saturday, with live traditional German music, bratwurst and German-style beer.
Matt Novik, marketing manager at the Co-Op, said people should come to Junetoberfest because “it’s going to be awesome.
“It’s basically a traditional Oktoberfest in the middle of June. It’s a celebration of local breweries and local food,” he said. “The event itself features beer from five local breweries: Ponysaurus, Fullsteam Brewery, Durty Bull, Bull Durham Beer and Bull City.”
Tickets are $20 and can be bought at the door, provided they do not sell out.
A ticket comes with two tokens, which can be redeemed for one bratwurst or two beers. Tickets also come with a beerstein and all-you-can-eat snacks, such as pretzels and obatzda, a traditional Bavarian cheese dish.
As to why the event is in June and not October, Novik said, “Why not? We decided to spice it up a little bit.”
Junetoberfest runs 2-6 p.m. Saturday, June 10, at the Durham Co-Op, 1111 W. Chapel Hill St., Durham.
