Northern Virginia's Largest Oktoberfest in Shirlington Oct. 5



    Capital City Brewing Co. just turned 21, which should mean their Oktoberfest should finally be legal! All the more reason to celebrate along with them during the 14th annual Capital City Brewing Oktoberfest this Oct. 5. 

    Enter this German inspired fest for $25 and you'll experience the 50+ breweries fighting for your attention (and consumption) as you meander through the streets of Munich, um, we mean Shirlington, searching for your next favorite brews. 
    Admission includes a four-ounce tasting glass and 10 drink tickets. (Extra tickets are $1 each), The event is free for those who choose the sober route because everyone needs a designated sober friend, right? 
    Authentic German food and music will surround each street corner, so be there or be square with or without your dirndl or lederhosen. 
    The fest is located at the Village in Shirlington at 4001 Campbell Ave. in Arlington, Va. Hours are noon to 7 p.m on Saturday, Oct. 5.
