Shacktoberfest Returns This Friday, Sept. 23

Oktoberfest-inspired celebration returns for its 11th year

Shacktoberfest returns to Shake Shack for its 11th year beginning this Friday, Sept. 23 and lasting until Oct. 2.

During the celebration, the fast-casual chain will be offering an “Oktoberfest-inspired menu,” according to a release. New to the lineup is a Bavarian-style soft pretzel.

Also on the menu is the Brat Burger, a “hamburger topped with a flat-top griddled Usinger's cheddar-stuffed bratwurst, crispy ShackMeister Ale-marinated shallots, and ShackSauce.” The ShackMeister Brat features Usinger’s Cheddar-stuffed bratwurst, ShackMeister Ale-marinated shallots, and ShackSauce.

An Apfelstrudel and Black Forest shake round out the lineup.

Customers can also purchase a 25-ounce Shake Shack Bier Stein for $10, which can be filled with Brooklyn Brewery’s Oktoberfest or ShackMeister Ale. The Bier Stein is for keeps, and refills cost $7.69.

The Shacktoberfest menu will be available at all U.S. shacks with the exception of Glendale, California, airports, and stadiums.
