Weekend Beer Events

The 9th annual Mid-Atlantic Oktoberfest takes place in Arlington on Saturday. Also on Saturday is the World Beer Festival in Durham. It's too bad I can't be in two places at once as both of these events will be a lot of fun. I will be in Durham at the WBF and look forward to seeing many of you there.

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