It’s always Oktoberfest at Prosit, which opened a new location in Eagle County at the end of August.
With 12 beers on tap all imported from Bavaria and Belgium served in classic tall glasses and an open location next to Loaded Joe’s in Avon, Prosit also has an extensive — and exotic — food menu.
“That’s kind of our thing here,” said Scott Pohlman, owner of Prosit, with locations in Summit County and Denver. “It’s all world-class beers from those two regions.”
Food for Thought
Beyond the beers, Prosit is known for its brats and good old Bavarian fun. The simple menu has brats (traditional and exotic), sample platters to share, salads, pretzels, soups, sandwiches and desserts.
Traditional sausages include beer brats, frankfurters, smoked beef brats, a cheese brat and more for $8 to $10. The exotic sausages feature an elk jalapeno cheddar brat as well as wild boar, Buffalo green chili, venison, antelope rabbit and other interesting brats for $9 to $10.
If you need liquid courage to muster the confidence to order off of the exotic sausage menu, then Prosit has you covered. There’s also wine, soda and other drinks available.
For now, Prosit’s menu is focused on Oktoberfest, only serving beers from tents at the actual Oktoberfest in Munich. When winter rolls around, the beer on tap will shift to darker beers, Pohlman said, and the food menu will include goulashes, soups and stews.
The beers currently on tap vary in alcohol by volume from 4.8 percent to 9 percent and are served in half-liter and 1 liter glasses.
“We love this location. It’s very central to Avon and Eagle County with plenty of parking and a big door that opens up to the outside,” Pohlman said. “Eventually we’ll have a full on beer garden out here, so there will be seating outside.”
Live music is also on tap, with Beau Thomas — of “The Voice” — performing on Friday, Sept. 22. Once a month, live authentic Austrian music will fill Prosit, and local musicians will be performing, too.
“We look forward to being here in Eagle County,” Pohlman said. “We’re real excited to have 12 really good beers here — beers you can’t find anywhere else out here.”
