And once the keg arrived at the southside fest grounds.
it was time for the annual tapping.
The 2016 Tapping of the Golden Keg is a special year
in the history of Oktoberfest.
This year marks the temporary return of the Olde Style
brew to La Crosse.
The special Oktoberfest brew is the official beer
for the 2016 festivities.
Brewers say getting the chance to brew an old local
beer helped bring our community together.
It really energized everybody at the brewery, myself
included, and really the whole community has really
jumped on board to welcome Olde Style back to La Crosse.
We'll take you to this year's fesmaster's ball tonight
on News Eight at Six.
And then tomorrow morning at ten.
we'll take you live to the Maple Leaf Parade.
right here on News Eight.
