Month-long Oktoberfest Rocks at Lark, beginning September 14!
Lark’s outdoor patio, the largest in Boystown, will transform itself into Boystown’s most fabulous outdoor Oktoberfest biergarten from Friday, September 14 through Sunday, October 14. During Oktoberfest, Lark will feature a special draft beer flight. Guests can choose four beers from Lark’s draft beer collection, served on a special beer flight serving tray. The price is only $10, which includes all four beers. Lark also will offer a special beer stein to take home.
Oktoberfest wouldn’t be complete without some hearty Bavarian specialties: your beer flight will go down so, so smoothly when paired with Lark’s “Too Big to Handle” House Made Bavarian Pretzel, $12 with beer cheese dipping sauce and ground mustard. Another way to indulge yourself is with Lark’s “Big and Juicy” Sausage Platter, $16, featuring a humongous bratwurst or knockwurst, served with warm red cabbage and sauerkraut. If you’re in a burger mood, nothing beats Lark’s special Oktoberfest Pretzel Burger, $16, a half-pound steak burger topped with beer braised pulled pork and stone ground mustard and served with beer cheese sauce and gruyere cheese.
Your Oktoberfest sweet tooth will be more than satisfied with Lark’s Oktoberfest Apple Strudel, $9, served with rich homemade ice cream.
