Link Restaurant Group

Donald Link and Stephen Stryjewsk’s Tchouptoberfest German-themed block party returns for its second year on October 13 from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. at NOLA Brewing Company with a few changes.

First, it’s free. Second, the location is moving from outside Cochon to outside NOLA Brewing, a little further up Tchoupitoulas (3001 Tchoup).

NOLA Brewing is releasing a special beer — a new Munich dunkel “Tchouptoberfest.”

The food, available for purchase, comes from chefs with past ties to the Link Restaurant Group: Leighann Smith and Dan Jackson of Piece of Meat Butcher Shop, Adam Biderman of Company Burger, Charlie Murley and Nathan Reed of Tacocat, Bret Macris of Cochon Butcher, Doug Crowell of Bao and Noodle, Maggie Scales of Link Restaurant Group, and Ian Barrilleaux and Eliot Guthrie of Congregation Coffee.

They’ll be slinging weisswurst on a pretzel bun with mustard; a curry best burger with tots, curry ketchup, and kraut; jaeger schnitzel with beer-braised cabbage and mustard; “jazzman jook” with sausage, smoked fish, and spicy fried cabbage and onions, Bavarian pretzels with mustard; apple strudel; black forest cake; candied nuts; and coconut cream coffee.

Live music from Indy Rock bands, including Royal Teeth, Midriff, Dark Lounge, Pearl Earl, and Sexy Dex & the Fresh, will play throughout the day.

The event is open to children accompanied by a parental guardian.

UPDATE (October 10, 2018; 9:20 a.m.): An earlier version of this story said the event is only 21+ this year, but the event is open to children and adults, as long as the children are accompanied by a parental guardian. Also, it runs from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. (not 7 p.m., as previously stated.)
