International flavors: Greenwich’s Bruce Museum to host first Oktoberfest

September 17, 2018

Oktoberfest has a long tradition in Munich, but it’s just getting started at the Bruce Museum. The Greenwich institution plans to hosts its first such celebration, with beer from Paulaner USA and classic German fare from Harlan Haus.

Paulaner has a long history, crafting beer in Bavaria since the 1600s. Its presence will loom large at Munich, as it will at the museum. The food arrives from the Harlan Restaurant Group, which operates Harlan Social in Stamford, Harlan Publick in Norwalk and Harlan Haus, a beer and wurst hall in the historic People’s Bank Building in Bridgeport.

“We’re excited to host our first Oktoberfest and to welcome a fun new crowd to the Bruce Museum,” said Brooke Amico, the museum’s special events manager, in a recent news release.

Get out those dancing clogs and lederhosen, too, for spins on the dance floor, as live traditional Oktoberfest music also is on the menu.

If the weather holds, festivities will take place on museum grounds, a short hop from the indoor galleries, which will be open for an after-hours tour.

Bruce Museum, One Museum Drive, Greenwich. Thursday, Sept. 27, 6 to 8 p.m. $40 to $30. 203-869-0376. Reserve in advance at brucemuseum.org
