After the beer tasting you will be able to try out some appetizers and take in some german music performed by the organ master of the church and some members of the choir. A german themed dinner and a silent auction will round out the evening.
Speaking of Oktoberfest, get into Barley John’s where you can to try out the 9.4% double decocted brew before it runs out. Barley John’s has a German brewing system so they make this one true to form.
