I heard someone say the other day that October is their favorite month. At first I thought that seems a little crazy. I mean why not September if you’re into fall? I know it’s not technically fall, but it is in my book. Or why not July? That’s a pretty, pretty good month. But the more I thought about it, October is a really great time of year around these parts. Changing leaves, crisp air, football and pumpkins, what more could you ask for?
Anyway, what’s also pretty great about October is beer. Those rich, malty brews are ready to be had. In that vein, Ogren Park at Allegiance Field will host Oktoberfest on Saturday, Oct. 20, from noon until 6 p.m. The entry fee is $10 for a glass and two beers. The proceeds go to benefit Friends of the Civic Stadium.
The music lineup is as follows:
- Miller Creek, noon-1:45 p.m.
- Cold Hard Cash, 2-3:45 p.m.
- Reverend Slanky , 4-5:45 p.m.
If I can track down what beers will be there, I’ll be sure to post an update.
