Raise Your Stein

October 12th marks the 8th year of Oktoberfest in Buckeye! Originally, Oktoberfest was started in Bavaria, Germany more than 200 years ago. Who knows, maybe they had Sangria there? Traditional beer steins were part of the celebration. Over time steins became more ornate. A contest for the coolest beer stein is brewing at the 6th Street Plaza Sangria & Shopping Biergarten October 12th at 9 a.m. in Historic Downtown Buckeye, Arizona!

Look At My Stein Contest!

Jay Broadbent of the Powers-Leavitt Insurance, Rotary Club of Buckeye, Buckeye Elks and Buckeye Main Street Coalition gave us a peek at a few of his Anheuser-Busch steins. Jay started his collecting in 1979 which has grown to about 120 steins.

When I asked Jay why he started collecting steins he said, “I just enjoyed it and I was working for Budweiser at the time.”
