Celebrate Oktoberfest with Shake Shack

Celebrate Oktoberfest with Shake Shack

Shacktoberfest will feature German-inspired burgers, beers, and shakes October 3–12

Bratwurst + Shake Shack burgers = deliciousness.

Move aside, pumpkin spice latte. October is coming, and that means celebrating Oktoberfest with German beers (and food). Shacktoberfest, Shake Shack’s 8th annual celebration of German tastes, is back. From October 3 through 12, you can order off a specialty Oktoberfest menu with brat burgers, German chocolate concretes, or a stein filled with Brooklyn Brewery’s best Oktoberfest beer. You can get any one of these “wunderbar” creations at all Shake Shack locations, excluding airport and ballparks.

You can buy a Shake Shack bier stein for $10, and receive $7 beer refills throughout the Shaktoberfest weeklong celebration. There’s also the Bavarian Brat; Currywurst, a Bavarian brat topped with curry and shallots; Brat Burger, topped with bacon Cheddar-stuffed bratwurst and Shack sauce; the Bacon Cheddar Brat; German Chocolate Walnut Concrete; and the Apfelstrudel Shake, hand-spun with apples, caramel, and spices.

All bratwurst served at Shake Shack are deemed authentic, and are made by Schaller and Weber, the German butcher and sausage maker in Astoria.

Celebrating Shake Shack’s Shacktoberfest

When there’s a chance to eat a limited menu at Shake Shack, I’m always down to go. Recently we went to Shake Shack Buckhead in Atlanta to try the Shacktoberfest menu. The special menu goes until October 2nd (tomorrow), so if you haven’t had a chance to try it, go to your local Shake Shack to get a taste of the Oktoberfest-inspired menu.

I ordered the Brat Burger, Bavarian-Style Soft Pretzel, and Brooklyn Brewery’s Oktoberfest beer all for myself. Lady Droolius had her go-to order of a ShackBurger and fries with a side of cherry peppers (not pictured because she was already eating when I started taking photos). We get Shake Shack cravings all the time, so the special menu was our excuse to go on this trip.

Brat Burger – Hamburger topped with a flat-top griddled Usinger’s cheddar-stuffed bratwurst, crispy ShackMeister Ale-marinated shallots and ShackSauce

The Brat Burger was a good mashup of a ShackBurger (minus cheese & veggies) topped with shallots and the griddled Usinger’s cheddar-stuffed bratwurst. The cheddar bratwurst was the star here and carried the flavor overall. I didn’t mind that of course, but should I have just ordered the ShackMeister Brat itself? Maybe next time. Regardless, I enjoyed this burger and encourage everyone to try it.

Fun fact: According to the Shake Shack website, “All bratwursts are made by Usinger’s Famous Sausage Co., a Milwaukee-based, family-run butcher that has been making authentic German sausages for over 130 years.”

Bavarian-Style Soft Pretzel – Toasted soft pretzel topped with Bavarian spices

The Bavarian-Style Soft Pretzel was a warm, soft pretzel that paired nicely with the Brooklyn Brewery Oktoberfest beer. I actually liked dipping the pretzel in yellow mustard and following it with beer. This is a new menu item for Shacktoberfest and hope to see it again in the future.

Shake Shack Shacktoberfest started on September 23rd and runs until Sunday, October 2nd. The Shacktoberfest event happens yearly, but the menu may change slightly. If you’ve been looking for a way to celebrate Oktoberfest, this could be a good start.
