When: October 5
Where: Long Ireland Beer Company in Riverhead

It’s that time of the year again. No, it’s not the holiday season yet (even though that’s around the corner — believe it or not). The world’s largest Volksfest, Oktoberfest begins in Munich at the end of September, but if you can’t afford the trip over the Atlantic, why not celebrate it at home?

Long Ireland Beer Company is hosting its 6th Annual Oktoberfest Party and Movie  Night next month! There will be German-inspired food available, a stein holding contest and more!  Free admission.
