“How much can you lift?” is not just a question for the gym this October, with a stein-lifting competition taking center stage of Oktoberfest festivities in Pierce County. At Harmon’s four locations in Tacoma, Gig Harbor and Puyallup, competitors can try and win a weekend trip for two to Leavenworth. Details can be found at https://www.harmonbrewingco.com/oktoberfest/.
In addition to the feats of strength, music from Smilin’ Scandanavians and My Guilty Pleasure will grace the stage at Harmon’s restaurants, and various specialty beer kegs will be tapped regularly. Drink and food specials will take place all month, and a list of main events and happenings at Harmon’s locations are below.
