A Texas-size Beer Event

T.G.I. Tuesday, Pint Jockeys!

Via GalvestonOktoberfest.com

We’re only two days into the week but the promise of this weekend’s big event has us chugging through. We can’t believe it’s that time of year again, but the Galveston Island Oktoberfest is BACK! The event kicks off Friday, October 26 and lasts through Saturday the 27th at First Lutheran Church.

Offering live entertainment, Wurst Abendessen, kids’ activities, the annual German Kuchen (cake) bake off and, of course, lots of beer, it’s no wonder the two-day festival welcomes over 15,000 people each year.

We hear the libation lineup includes German selections from Hofbräuhaus, Paulaner and Beck’s. Stateside brews, including Saint Arnold, ZiegenBock, Bud Light, Budweiser and Shock Top, will also be available.

Because we know you’re there to have a good time, we’ve partnered with Yellow Cab Galveston to bring you an awesome new free app, HAIL A CAB™. The app allows you to literally hail a cab with the push of a button. And here’s the coolest part – using GPS, your phone will automatically let the driver know where you are (even if you don’t know) AND you can track how long it will be before your cab arrives.

If you don’t have a smartphone (or, like some of us, don’t know how to use one), you can also hail a cab the old fashioned way at the on-site taxi station. No matter how you hail one, Yellow Cabs will be readily available throughout the weekend for you and your friends to use to get home safely.

Please drink responsibly and ‘til Friday, cheers Pint Jockeys!
