Pigtoberfest 2022 – Boneshire Brew Works

Pigtoberfest 2022 – At Boneshire Brew Works Brewery on Derry Street, in Rutherford Pennsylvania on Saturday October 1st, 2022

Pigtoberfest Time Again!

Its time for everyone’s favorite annual ‘oinking good time’ – thats right, its Pigtoberfest time again! Once again its getting to be fall time and that means Oktoberfests everywhere, and at Boneshire Brew Works – that means Pigtoberfest.

The annual Pigtoberfest is always a fun event at Boneshire Brew Works with live music, great beers, a stein holding contest, and much more. And this year’s Pigtoberfest will be no exception!


From their e – mail flyer:

Boneshire 3rd Annual Pigtoberfest! 1 liter Steins of The Best Marzen This side of the Rhine! Bratwurst, Knockwurst, Potato Salad, Beer Cheese Soup Bavarian Stompers Start Playing at 1pm!

They also have a Facebook event:

(Edited: September 30th, 6:50AM) (The event page was updated.)

“RAIN OR SHINE! Come join us for our 3rd annual Pigtoberfest. Its time to for Oktoberfest and 1L steins of Pigtoberfest to celebrate. The Bavarian Stompers will be here with traditional German music. Bratwurst, knockwurst, sauerkraut, soft pretzels and hot dogs! We will have plenty of tables outside. Stein holding contest at 2pm!”

You can find more information at their Facebook event page here: 3rd Annual Pigtoberfest at Boneshire Brew Works on Saturday, October 1st, 2022.

Annual Pigtoberfest Beer

Each year at this time Boneshire Brew Works also releases their annual Pigtoberfest Beer. You can read our review of it here: Beer Review: Pigtoberfest (Boneshire Brew Works).

Its an extremely delicious Festbier and certainly one of my favorites of the style; especially in the local area. If you are able to get it – and not just on the 1st (during the Pigtoberfest) – be sure to stop in and try it, you won’t be disappointed a tall, I can guarantee that.

Hurricane Ian

Well, this section is an update (edited and updated on September 30th at 6 – 7AM). With Hurricane Ian this changes things a little, but the event will go on – Rain or Shine. Music will still be there, stein holding will still happen, and there will still be wonderful beers flowing and food to eat. So be sure not to miss this just due to a few sprinkles (…or torrential rainfall… either / or). The event will still go on and be just as much fun if its inside or outside have no fears of that.

Thanks For Reading

Saturday the 1st is going to be a busy day for us here at The Beer Thrillers. First off in the morning Amy and I will be volunteering with the Alzheimer’s Association’s Walk to End ALZ in Harrisburg (on City Island), then we’ll be stopping at the Polish / Slavic Fest (piroegies!) and then following that going to the Pigtoberfest. So look for us there probably around 1:30 to 2PM ish… I am guessing here, time becomes fluid once we start hitting up events. Hopefully Hurricane Ian will hold out and not turn everything into a wash fest, but we’ll see.

Fingers crossed.

(Edit: Hurricane Ian is going to be definitely playing a part, and will most likely be raining all day tomorrow – Saturday. We’ll see how this changes our plans. I know Amy’s mom SueAnne won’t be going with to the walk due to getting over a cold and having surgery on Monday. Edited on September 30th, at 7:15AM.)

(And don’t let the Breweries in PA banner with all the Oktoberfest Events mislead you… there is certainly a Pigtoberfest / Oktoberfest event going on at Boneshire Brew Works this weekend. They have several other breweries listed and shown on their image graphic / banner, but for some reason they don’t have Boneshire’s. They have Wolf’s listed, they have Pilger Ruh’s listed, Sly Fox’s, Wyndridge’s, Lost Tavern’s, and a few other’s listed, but they don’t have Boneshire Brew Works’s listed. They seem to give Boneshire Brew Works a bit of the short thrift it seems at times, but have no fear, we’ll cover them, and we’ll keep you updated. Also, have no fear, the event is certainly going on. Cheers! Edited: September 30th, 2:45PM.)

Once again, let me say thanks for reading. Hope you all have a wonderful end of September and beginning of October. There are so many fun Octoberfest events going on across the state (and across the nation… and across the world really) so get out there and enjoy some fun. I know on the 1st there is at least three events that I can think of – Pigtoberfest, Wolftoberfest, and Piltoberfest. (Boneshire Brew Works, Wolf Brewing, and Pilger Ruh Brewing respectively.) Hopefully you’ll be able to make it out to one of them.

Cheers all!
