Oktoberfest Location: 833 Torrance Blvd., Torrance, CA

Torrance, Calif.--You don't have to speak German, be German or even Southern Californian to know all about Alpine Village Oktoberfest.


The oldest, biggest Oktoberfest event in Los Angeles County serves up a simple formula. Import a list of German bands that perform a wide variety of authentic Bavarian tunes, set up an outdoor patio for the event so people can enjoy the Southern California weather, centrally locate yourself near a major freeway, and offer surrounding cultural amenities such as German restaurants and shops to allow guests to wander, dine and do more.

As part of our Oktoberfest events coverage, we've attended several of the year-round German/Bavarian facilities in Southern California that include The Phoenix Club in Anaheim, Old World Village in Huntington Beach and Alpine Village in Torrance and can truthfully say each offers its own unique brand of Oktoberfest fun.  With that in mind, you may just want to see them all. But don't exclude one of our very favorites up in the San Bernardino mountains east of L.A. Big Bear Lake has a very organized event with some great games and competitions.  (One of their strong bier stein carrying competitors actually went over to Germany to compete, and win, the contest in which ladies and girls carry as many competition-sized mugs filled with beer in two hands as possible.)

Back at Alpine Village, the Southern California weather is supreme in Sept - October, making an outdoor beer garden location for dancing and bands the perfect spot--not too hot. The crowds that attend these events, especially on a weekend night, can turn a room steamy. So Alpine gets an "A" for its set up and elevated dance floor for viewing shows such as the dancers seen in the video above.


The song and dance seen in the Alpine Village Oktoberfest Video:




In München steht ein Hofbräuhaus: Eins, zwei, ... g’suffa !
Da läuft so manches Fäßchen aus: Eins, zwei, ... g’suffa !
Da hat so manche braver Mann: Eins, zwei, ... g’suffa !
Gezeigt was er so vertragen kann.
Schon früh am Morgen fing er an,
Und spät am Abend kam er heraus,
So schön ist’s im Hofbräuhaus.



In Munich A Royal Brewery,
One, two, drink up!
That’s where many a barrel
of beer runs dry
One, two, drink up!
There many a good man
One two, drink up!
Has shown what he can take
Early in the morning he starts
And late in the night he
comes home.
That is how nice it was in
the Royal Beer Brewery
