Maifest (Mayfest) is a traditional German festival to celebrate the beginning of spring. Germans celebrate by decorating their cities with a Maibaum (Maypole), colorful ribbons, and flowers. The festival includes traditional music, dancing, attire, and of course, German food and beer – such as Maibock! We will be releasing our Keller Series Maibock on Friday to kick off the festival. A May king and queen are selected from the festival attendees.

Join us for our version of Mayfest this year to celebrate the arrival of spring!

Mayfest King & Queen

Are you Mayfest royalty?

We are now accepting nominations for Mayfest King and Queen! In keeping with German Maifest tradition, we’re looking to crown a Mayfest King and Queen! Are you or someone you know a Jack’s Abby fan deserving of the crown? The King and Queen will be upgraded to VIP status, receive custom-made Jack’s Abby crowns, $100 gift cards, and have their photo taken with Jack to be proudly displayed in our Beer Hall!
