  • The Anchor's Bend 1300 Ocean Avenue Boardwalk Asbury Park, NJ, 07712 United States (map)



The Anchor’s Bend and Asbury Festhalle & Biergarten  bar have teamed up to bring Asbury Park Oktoberfest to the Anchor’s Bend inside the iconic Asbury Park Convention Hall  the weekend of  Friday, Oktober 17, Saturday Oktober 18 and Sunday Oktober 19.

New Downtown Asbury Park business, Asbury Festhalle & Biergarten, is set to open its doors  in November, but with the support of The Anchor’s Bend a traditional Oktoberfest will be held thanks to this community effort.

“In our commitment to fostering the Asbury Park community as a whole, The Anchor’s Bend is more than happy to welcome the Biergarten to town.   We are excited for what the Biergarten team will bring to Asbury Park, as I’m sure they’re only going to add new energy to the ever-growing eclectic nature that makes this city so very special,” said James Douglas. 

 “It was an awesome welcoming gesture and great idea for us to team up with The Anchor’s Bend.  Asbury Festhalle & Biergarten has received such a warm welcome -- we cannot wait to open.  In the meantime, come get your polka on and celebrate Oktoberfest at Anchor’s Bend!”said Jennifer Lampert of the Asbury Festhalle & Biergarten.

Asbury Park Oktoberfest features six draft beers from Radeberger, HofbrauHaus, Hacker-Pschoor Kostritzer, Brooklyn and Paulener breweries and a specialty keg from Weltenburger. Bottled beers include selections from Schöfferhofer, Augesteiner, Flying Fish and Königbreweries. A special, limited quantity of Paulener Stern Weiss bottles will be featured and beer cocktails will also be available.
