Polka. Smiles. Laughter. Brats.

Join us for our 3rd Annual FoundationFest "HEFtoberfest".  

The oompah band is playing and the colors of the Wisconsin countryside are vibrant. 

So dust off your lederhosen, lace up your dirndl, 

 and experience all the fun with our take on the traditional Oktoberfest! 

What's on the Menüs to "essen" = eat and "trinken"= drink?

Our delicious authentic HEFtoberfest fare catered by Bunzel's 

Featuring a German-inspired buffet dinner menu includes: Brats, Pork Sandwiches, Sauerkraut, German Potato Salad, Cole Slaw, Pretzel Bar, as well as amazing desserts.

And Of Course, There’s The BIER!

HEFtoberfest will feature a flight of German beers. A range of Oktoberfest beer will be offered in 4oz samplings.

Purchase a Souvenir 32oz HEFtoberfest Beer Stein filled with draft beer and then you can say "Noch ein Bier, bitte!" = Another beer, please! or "Ich lade euch ein." = This round is on me! 

If beer stylings aren't your thing, Ironwood has top-shelf and rail spirits along with wine offerings.  And don't forget to say "Prost!" = Cheers! 

and for your "Unterhaltung" = entertainment...

Who wears it best?

Gather your friends and embrace the spirit of HEFtoberfest while you "tragen" = wear your finest "Lederhosen" and "Dirndls" (typical German fashion). 

Get ready you could win a prize for the best-dressed mann or frau!!

Do you have what it takes to win a Stein Holding Contest?

Stein holding is a traditional Bavarian strength contest in which competitors hold a full bier stein out in front of their bodies with a straight arm, parallel to the ground. You go as long as you can and the last person holding with good form is the winner.


Hammerschlagen is a game in which participants compete against each other to drive nails into a piece of wood.
