The King of Prussia Beerfest Royale is coming October 5th & 6th to the mall next weekend.

Beerfest will feature over 30 breweries, many of them local and German breweries, together under two tents in the parking lot by The Court. Music will be a highlight of the festival with a local blues-rock band playing along with bands playing German music.

“In addition to an incredible selection of local craft and German beer, King of Prussia Beerfest Royale’s top-notch musical acts will create an environment unlike any other beer festival in the Philadelphia Region,” said Eric Goldstein, King of Prussia District Executive Director.

Local Brewer, Boxcar Brewing Company, has made a special Octoberfest style beer for the occasion. The Beeron von Steuben’s Reserve is a non-traditional style Octoberfest brewed with a combination of German Hops. Having tasted this beer myself at the Preview Event last Thursday, I am looking forward to having a few more. It is a lighter Octoberfest that is very easy to drink and will be fitting for a mid-day festival.
