Oktoberfest 2017! A Festive Evening with Friends & Colleagues

Annual Celebration in Palo Alto

Every year, the Law Offices of Peter N. Brewer and the Law Office of Jeffrey C. Miller host an Oktoberfest celebration for clients, colleagues, and friends. Over 100 people come out on a Friday evening in October to enjoy the festivities, in what has become an annual "can't miss" event. The parking area of the Brewer Law building is completely transformed into a German town square, with beer girls in traditional dirdl dresses roaming around and serving beer. Some attendees even join in the festivities by wearing alpine hats or lederhosen! We've held the event every year since 2012, and this year's Oktoberfest was again a great hit! Check out the highlights by scrolling below.


Appealing to All the Senses

In creating a festive and cheerful atmosphere, Oktoberfest appeals to all the senses. Smells of delicious German food permeates the air — scents of sauerkraut, schnitzel, sausage, and stroganoff tempt the taste buds with their strong aroma. The buffet is embellished with an assortment of flavors — some sweet, some tangy, some salty, but all delicious! German oompah music gracefully accents the sounds of fellowship: a constant, undulating symphony of cheerful conversations and laughter. Charming floral arrangements and harvest wheat stalks beautifully compliment the rugged textures of the burlap table runners, completing the transformation of a parking area into a picturesque town square.


It is hard to translate the word gemütlichkeit from German into English, but the best translation is "Good Cheer!". This word describes an atmosphere of warmth and friendliness that is created every year during Oktoberfest. In German, the word is used to describe a space or a state of warmth, well-being, social acceptance, and peace. The goal of our Oktoberfest celebration every year is to create a festive atmosphere of gemütlichkeit, through beautiful decorations, delicious food, wonderful conversations, refreshing beverages, and vibrant music.

Conversations & Connections

Prost! Cheers!

Thanks for another great Oktoberfest! We'll see you next year!
