Weekend Beer Events

It's a busy weekend. The 6th Annual Fredericksburg Oktoberfest put on by the Blue & Gray Brewing Company kicks off Friday evening and runs through Sunday. I plan to be there Friday evening. You can see the full event schedule here. On Saturday I'll be helping to serve Blue & Gray Oktoberfest beer at our church's Fall Festival. (Rained out.) Also this weekend is the Northern Virginia BrewFest in Centreville. I look forward to seeing many of you there on Sunday.

In addition, these retailer tasting events offer even more opportunities for trying out some new beers.
