Bowery Station and Oyster City Brewing Company are excited about the musical line-up for this year's ApalachOktoberfest to be held Oct 6 - 8 on Columbus Day weekend.  Top it all off with some of the best brew on the Gulf Coast and you know it will be an event to remember.

It all starts on Friday, Oct 6 at Bowery Station.  Brewmaster Clayton Mathis will pour the first liter of OCBC Lyin' Fish Lager to officially open the festivities at 7pm, as the Jerry Thigpen Trio with special guest Del Suggs kick off the live music!  Commemorative Liter beer mugs will be available for only $15, which can be filled with your choice of either Lyin' Fish Lager or Tates Helles for only $6 all weekend long!  Bratwurst will be grilling late into the evening to benefit the SGI Cat Allies.

Then, Saturday, Oct 7 at Bowery Station the festivities continue...Cat Braaten leads off the day 2 O'clock.  The brats will be simmering on the grill and the OCBC beer will be flowing as also welcome the Apalachicola Chocolate and Coffee Company making up some delicious German chocolate fudge turnovers, and blueberry turnovers during the course of the day. The non-stop music will continue as we welcome Dirty Bird & the Flu from 4-6pm.  We then have a special guest to be announced from 6-7pm, followed up by the Bo Spring Band from 7-10.

Get some sleep, because Sunday is packed with beer and music.

It all moves down to the street in front of OCBC on Sunday, Oct 8.  The day starts with a duo of John Sutton and Brian Bowen, followed by Matt Law and Usual Suspects.  Tatjiana Christensen will then be playing the polka tunes on the squeezebox, followed up by Johnny Barbato and the Lucky Doggs.  The day continues with another duo of Eric Pfuefer and Bill Pandolfi, and ends with a showcase performance (all the way from California) of Pope Paul and the Illegals!!  Plenty of food will be served by the fine folks of the Owl and Tap Room, and of course the beer will be flowing. 

Exciting contests will be intermingled with the music, beer and food, along with an excess of frivolity all weekend long!

Below is a listing of approximate times of performances; please allow some flexibility as the days run for set-up, sound check, contests, etc.
