If traveling over to Munich seems a bit out of budget for this year, it doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the annual celebration of Oktoberfest. Thankfully, it will only take a short drive to Norristown instead.

The Elmwood Park Zoo’s annual celebration of beer tasting for a good cause is back for 2014. On Sept. 14 from noon to 3:30 p.m., guests can taste a variety of beers and support the zoo’s events and functions.

With beers from “all over the globe,” according to a recent release from the EPZ, tickets for Oktoberfest are discounted for guests only through today, July 23. The event features “dozens of beers for unlimited sampling” for ticketed guests, along with a variety of local food trucks for snacks.

Live entertainment will be provided, along with chances to win raffle prizes throughout the afternoon. For today only, readers can click here to get discounted rates by buying one, getting one half off.

Ticket prices are $40 for general admission. Those that buy today will get one general admission for $40 and one for $20. For those that select a “VIP Ticket,” the cost is $75.

General admission includes:

·      Zoo admission

·      Complimentary sampling glass

·      Unlimited beer tasting

·      Access to food trucks

VIP admission includes:

·      Zoo admission

·      Complimentary sampling glass

·      Unlimited beer tasting

·      Access to food trucks

·      Exclusive sampling of select beers

·      Private access to VIP areas

·      Free all-you-can-eat food from one of “the area’s top restaurants”

Oktoberfest is for those age 21 and over. Tickets are not refundable, and the event will go on rain or shine.

Discounted rates for designated drivers are only $15 (which, of course, does not including the sampling of beer). Designated drivers with VIP access are charged $25 each.
