Mountain West Cider and Red Rock Brewery will be celebrating Oktoberfest together again on 4th West this year. The 3rd annual celebration, officially titled “4th West Oktoberfest,” runs the weekend of Saturday, September 29th to Sunday, September 30th at 425 North 400 West in Salt Lake City, Utah. This year, 4th West Oktoberfest will be hosted in The Garten, Salt Lake City’s premier biergarten — a first of its kind for Utah. The festival will feature Mountain West’s hard ciders and Red Rock’s craft beers, among other special guest beverages. Only those of legal drinking age will be allowed to consume these alcoholic beverages, however all ages are invited to join in on the fun.
4th West Oktoberfest will include live music from local artists Murphy & The Giant, Will Baxter Band, Hollering Pines, Mountain Country, and Christian Coleman. “We are excited to host 4th West Oktoberfest at The Garten this year. We designed this modern-style biergarten specifically with this event in mind. It’s the perfect location to soak in the sun during the day and enjoy s’mores at night, all while sipping on a refreshing cider or beer,” says Jennifer Carleton, owner of Mountain West Cider.
Local food trucks Shylo’s Mobile Café and Gerlach’s, are scheduled to be at the event both days. San Diablo Churros will be in attendance on Saturday, while Lulu’s Churros will join in on Sunday. Marmalade Coffee Co. will serve local coffee until 1pm both days. Also serving, will be local breweries Bohemian, and Toasted Barrel Brewery who is also located off 4thWest. A specialty cocktail will be served by Ogden’s Own Distillery, using Five Wives Vodka and Porter’s Huckleberry whiskey liqueur will be available.
4th West Oktoberfest will host a great group of community partners and local vendors including Mark Miller Subaru, Yelp, Salt Lake Film Society, Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance, We Olive, The Green Urban Lunchbox, Beautiful Uprising, Sugar House Pup Cakes, Silvermoon Restoratives, Dappr Tire, Jessica Burleson Art, 4th West Apartments, Little Cottonwood Collection, To the T Design, and Stefahn’s Barbershop, among many others.
Games such as Cornhole, giant Jenga, and ring toss provide even more entertainment for festival-goers. And a children’s craft table stocked with coloring pages and crayons is available exclusively for the young ones.
Due to overwhelming success during past 4th West Fest events, Mountain West Cider and Red Rock Brewery are looking forward to many more successful collaborative events in years to come.
