Happy Oktober

In Munich, Oktoberfest began in September. In Sacramento, most events took place a couple of weeks ago. If you're feeling like you've completely missed out, there's still one more Oktoberfest celebration happening Saturday, October 24, in Roseville. A dozen mostly-local breweries will pour samples, including Auburn Alehouse, Track 7 Brewing Co. and the less-local Karl Strauss Brewing Co. Enjoy brews with bratwurst on a pretzel bun with sauerkraut, courtesy of the Monk's Cellar. The fun lasts from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Vernon Street Town Square, 311 Vernon Street, and general admission costs $35. Learn more at http://roseville.ca.us/
. Now, if you're more of a hard cider person and are totally sick of all this beer talk, take note that local urban winery Revolution Wines (2831 S Street) will celebrate its first-ever cider on Saturday, October 24, as well. From 11:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m., grab a pint paired with pulled pork sliders for $15. More at http://rwwinery.com.
