368160-250It’s been 7 long months since we all got our schnitzel on during the Oktoberfest celebrations around the area. But the International Tap House in Chesterfield is wondering why “October gets all of the fun?”

On May 17, iTAP Chesterfield will throw their 6th annual Maifest to celebrate all things (well, maybe not all things) German. There will be plenty of brats, bands, and most importantly: beer.

Plenty of German beer will be available including Hofbrau Original and Maibock, Schwaben Brau Heller Bock, and also the Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier. You’ll also get some locally made German styles from our friends at Urban Chestnut including the Erlkönig and Urbanator.
