Beer Stein
It's Oktober. Time for Bavarian-style Beer, oversized steins, and plenty of celebrating!

Come by any of our Brewery Restaurant locations to get your fix of Oktoberfest.

As for the steins, whether you prefer the half-liter or a big bad full-liter, we have you covered. Come in for your commemorative glass while supplies last.

Prost!

Featured Pairing: Oktoberfest & Pork Schnitzel Sliders

Pork Schnitzel Sliders

Beer-brined pork, pickled onions, beer bacon, arugula, tomato, chipotle ale mayo, and pretzel buns. $9.95
Oktoberfest Vienna and Munich malts produce the deep golden color, nutty undertones, and toasted malt flavors characteristic of this renowned Bavarian beer style. Perle hops imported directly from the Hallertau region of Germany give the beer a smooth balanced finish.

Oktoberfest’s toasted malts complement the pretzel buns and bring out the flavors in the beer-brined pork. The beer’s clean finish refreshes the palate from the crispy schnitzel breading and peppery arugula. Consider this our tribute to the world’s greatest beer party; from our side of the globe to the other. Prost!

About This Location

Opening in February of 1989, Karl Strauss Downtown became the first brewery to open in San Diego in more than fifty years. Located blocks from San Diego’s city center, this historic brewery location is where Master Brewer Karl Strauss brewed the first batches of his namesake Amber and our World Beer Cup and Great American Beer Festival medal-winning Red Trolley Ale. The original onsite microbrewery remains in full operation, consistently producing a series of rotating special release brews to pair with our West Coast pub fare. In addition to our drink beer, think food approach to beer and food pairing, Karl Strauss Downtown features 10 craft beers on tap, brewery tours, and a knowledgeable staff of craft beer enthusiasts.
