Maui’s Monkeypod Kitchen celebrates Oktoberfest with a special four-course dinner paired with hand-picked beer selections.

In order to make it extra special, reservations for the event are required, and the festivities are limited to 40 people.  By Tuesday morning, there were just a few spots left.

The dinner runs from 5:30 to 7 p.m. and is $45 per person.

The menu includes:

  • Amuse – Handcrafted pretzel with monkeypod kitchen mustard and roasted garlic dip
  • 1st Course – German fresh mushroom soup with fresh thyme, emmenthaler crouton
  • 2nd Course – woodfire roasted & chilled olinda Asparagus Salad, house made bacon, vine ripened tomato and Pilsener, shallot, mustard vinaigrette
