Home Newsroom 221. Barrington Businesses Toast the Season at Palatine’s Oktoberfest

It’s time to don your dirndl or hike on those lederhosen: Oktoberfest starts today in Palatine! At 5 p.m., the Kainz family, owners of Lake Barrington’s Onion Pub and Wild Onion Brewery, will kick off the Rotary Club of Palatine’s 6th annual celebration.

This will mark the 4th year the Kainz family has opened the event, which they also sponsor. “We’ll parade the firkin—the traditional vessel, which holds about 11 gallons—and then the beer will be blessed by a priest in German,” says Mike Kainz, the Onion’s brewmaster. “Then we tap the firkin, and it all begins!”

The folks at the Onion have been hard at work crafting their signature beers especially for the event.

Wild Onion brewers Pete Janusas and Mike Payson say their Oktoberfest, Kölsch, and Radler beers will be on tap. “It’ll be our most authentic, German-style beers,” says Payson.

The three-day event, which last year raised over $40,000 for local charities, is held right across from the Palatine Metra Station. Grab the kids and ride the train over to Saturday’s Family Day events, held from 12-3:30 p.m.  You can find the full list of scheduled Oktoberfest events at PalatineRotary.com/Oktoberfest.

Marketplace - Onion Pub and Brewery LogoWith cooler weather in the forecast, Oktoberfest should be a perfect way to welcome fall.

“We enjoy being a part of it,” says Mike Kainz.

And when it’s time to say “auf wiedersehn” to Oktoberfest, head on back to the Onion Pub to sample some of their amazing Pumpkin Ale, available for a limited time.

As we end No Name-Calling Week 2021, we want to leave you with the message that YOUR words matter.

Words are a container of power, of memories, of love. Your words stay with you and the people you say them to often longer than you would have imagined. You never know how even the smallest or simplest of words – love, hate, good, bad, strong, weak, always, never - can stay with someone for a lifetime. So, choose your words carefully, thoughtfully, and with purpose. Use your words to comfort, validate, encourage, empower, and inspire. You never know when your words have the power to change someone’s life or change the world.
