Oktoberfest At Forest City Brewery
With an Oktoberfest nearly every weekend, including this weekend's Cuyahoga County Oktoberfest, this is a pretty good time of year for fanatics of tall pints. But while we love the street fest vibe, we've fallen in love with a small-but-powerful gathering at Forest City Brewery, which celebrates its fourth annual event this weekend. For Waldorf Oktoberfest, the near-West-Side brewery welcomes Warsteiner Beer, the oldest German maker in the world, into its historic beer garden to serve suds next to traditional German fare from Parma's Das Schnitzel Haus. Traditional live music from Malphonia make this the perfect pint-sized Oktoberfest experience. Free, 9/21, 2-Forest City Brewery, 2135 Columbus Road, Cleveland, forestcitybrewery.com
