“Gordon Biersch and Oktoberfest go hand-in-hand, so we’re excited to bring together all of guests’ FestBier favorites for this year’s menu,” said Stan Frankenthaler, who was recently named Chief Officer of Food, Beverage and Strategic Supply for CraftWorks Restaurants & Breweries, Inc. “We’re currently undergoing a significant revamping of the Gordon Biersch menu as part of our efforts to evolve the brand and this year’s FestBier menu is just the beginning. From the FestBier Combo featuring a variety of German classics like grilled bratwurst and Hungarian sausages, to our German Kobe Burger and special FestBier amber lager, we’re confident guests will love the variety of traditional and signature flavors, as well as stylized classics.”
