Nearly a year ago, Applebee’s waged a war against our livers by offering $1 margaritas appropriately called “Dollaritas.” Ever since then, Applebee’s has offered a Neighborhood Drink of the Month. The offerings including $1 Long Island Ice Tea, $2 Absolute Vodka Lemonade, and $1 Bahama Mamas. Now you could be eatin’ good in the neighborhood with $2 Sam Adams OctoberFest beers.
Enjoy your Bourbon Street Chicken & Shrimp with a frosty beer for only $2 buckarinos. You should know that the $2 beers are served in a small 10-ounce mug, which is the equivalent of $2.40 for a 12-ounce bottle. Which is still a fantastic deal for your wallet. However, not all Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill + Bars will be offering the discounted brews.
“That crisp, cool smell. That warm, cozy feeling,” says Applebee’s. “Fall’s here—aka the $2 Samuel Adams OctoberFest. So let’s celebrate with our September Neighborhood Drink of the Month for only $2. It’s the perfect fall brew—one you’re sure to fall for this fall.”
You might be asking yourself: “But Paul, what’s up with Octoberfest beers in September?” To which I would reply,” Who the fuck cares as long as you get cheap brewskis?” But the actual reason why Oktoberfest is in September:
The first Oktoberfest was celebrated in Munich in 1810 in honor of Prince Ludwig’s marriage to Princess Therese von Sachsen-Hildburghausen. The festivities began October 12, 1810, and lasted for almost a week, until October 17. The public celebrations ended with an exciting horse race. After such a spectacular party, the happy couple decided that the same type of festival should be continued annually. In the following years, the galas were repeated every October, prolonged and, eventually moved forward into September primarily because of the weather.
So now you know that you can get cheap brews for Oktoberfest in September. PROST!
