The team at Central Michael Richard, headed by Chef Michael Richard himself, has created two different month-long specials that stand out among the district’s multitudinous Oktoberfest specials, because of the originality of the specials. The key to Oktoberfest is to pair great beer with the perfect accompanying cuisine, and Central has discovered a delicious combination.

Central Michael Richard has found a match made in heaven by partnering with Goose Island Brewery. The kitchen at Central is pairing Nuggets & Beer, featuring a 22-oz. bottle of Goose Island Brewery’s limited-production Belgian-style ale “Pepe Nero” to accompany Central’s juicy fried chicken nuggets. The delicious duo is only $24 for the month of October, and the special is available at the bar and lounge for lunch or dinner.

Central is putting a twist on Oktoberfest with their Nuggets & Beer combination, but the masterminds at Central Michael Richard are also keeping true to the occasion by featuring the breuhaus that started it all, Hofbrau. The essential Oktoberfest staple that started it all will be on draught for the entire month for only $7.

Central Michael Richard is on Pennsylvania Avenue and is infamous for its lively ambiance and casual sophistication. Visit into for more information on Central or its Oktoberfest specials.
