Brace yourselves, beer lovers. Oktoberfest is coming to Toronto in a way you’ve never seen before.

From Thursday through Saturday, Bavarian-inspired beergarden Mascot Brewery (31 Mercer St.) will be celebrating Oktoberfest with a selection of beers and bites that embrace Germany’s traditional flavours, but have a Mascot twist. Corn Brat and Schnitzel Fingers, anyone?

Odd Thomas (31 Mercer St., second floor) is also getting in on the fun and will keep the party going from 10 p.m. onwards each night. Both venues have a stellar roster of DJs lined up for the weekend, including Kid MK, Bill Slinnton, Alrighty, and Camotion. So grab your bowler hats and lederhosen, and come celebrate your love of beer!

The Mascot opens at 4 p.m. Thursday and Friday, and noon Saturday.
