Oktoberfest in the Dimond
Update on the BEER

I attended another weekly check in meeting for the ongoing organization of the Oktoberfest in the Dimond Event scheduled for Saturday, October 4th. Still lot's of details to work through, with about 3 1/2 weeks to go. And we talked a bit about the whole reason for the Fest - the beer. Did you know that historically the Dimond was known for it's Beer Gardens?

There will be both a Beer Garden (where you can purchase beer to drink while listening to music and other good fest stuff).

There will also be Beer Tasting. You pay a fee and get a Keepsake Beer Stein and then can taste from some of the following microbrews: Spaten (pictured) is a major donor. Other beers to be tasted include: Trummer, Linden Street Brewery, Pacific Coast Brewing Co. and Drake's Brewing Company. Yum!

There also will be some Local Homebrew Tasting. They're still looking for local home-brewers interesting in doing some sort of a judging thing. If you're game email Robert at .

And last but not least there's going to be ROOT Beer Garden for under 21ers including a bouncy house! Perfect combo - a keg of ROOT Beer and potentially dozens of kids bouncing like crazy on full carbonated stomachs. That alone will be worth the tasting fee!

Save the Date! It's going to be great fun as well as a chance to show off the Dimond and reinforce the emerging business dynamic among our local merchants. Here's some Yelp Reviews of Shop in the Dimond Businesses
