Oktoberfest is an important part of Bavarian culture and occurs in Germany for approximately 2 weeks in late September. It attracts nearly six million people and is the world’s largest fair.

Oktoberfest may only come around once a year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the best of Germany every day of the year in Chicago. Rich in food culture, Chicago has everything you need when you are looking for a stein of beer, potato pancakes, or dumplings and sauerkraut.

Lachet’s Inn

2119 W. Irving Park Road
Chicago, IL 60618

Dubbed as the “Spirit of Germany for yourself”, Lachet’s Inn reintroduces Fine German food and hospitality “at a time when experiencing ethnic food is becoming a trend.” Once a local drinking establishment serving Schlitz Beer, Lachet’s Inn has changed hands and developed over the years and now boasts sidewalk café dining and much more.

Chicago Brauhaus

Chicago, IL 60625

Resi’s Bierstube Restaurant and Tavern

2034 W. Irving Park Road
Chicago, IL 60618

Boasting a beer garden, potato pancakes and rye bread to die for this North Center restaurant has it all in a casual attire. You won’t break your wallet, but you can grab a great big stein of your favorite German beer. However, I would probably leave the kids at home for this one.


Berghoff Cafe

17 West Adams Street
Chicago, IL 60603
312-427-7399
www.theberghoff.com

Berghoff is back and better then ever. Now located at on Adams downtown the Berghoff Café offers hand-carved sandwich, fresh salads, Paninis, one of our daily specials, or other favorite. “Bringing lunch to you the fresh and fast way.”


Uberstein

3478 N. Clark Street
Chicago, IL 60657
773-883-0300

This place puts the “Uber” in “Stein”. Come on in for just about any imaginable German beer in this Wrigleyville establishment. Uberstein features a beer garden street side on Clark Street, so you can do your best people watching after a Cubs game with a perfect stein of German beer, and let’s not forget the dumplings and sauerkraut.
