Cottagewood General Store Kicks Off Fall with Oktoberfest

Cottagewood General Store
Ring in Autumn with German cuisine and a pint this weekend.

Anyone who lives in the lake area knows what a local treasure the Cottagewood General Store is. Quaint, charming, inviting—the neighborhood store really nails the homey feeling of community. Experience that homey feeling while getting a taste of Europe this weekend. The General Store brings authentic German cuisine, festival music and Bavarian games to Minnesota with its annual Oktoberfest on Saturday, September 28 from 5:30—9:30 p.m. In the Cottagewood Biergarten, taste the concoctions from local brewery Excelsior Brewing (or a pint of 1919 Root Beer for the little ones). Bring your appetite to sample brats from Mackenthun’s and fare from Mary and Mala’s Kitchen. This family-friendly fundraiser supports the Cottagewood Community Foundation, which maintains and supports the Cottagewood General Store. Grab your lederhosen and dirndls and join the party!
