[ORIGINAL POST:] Ziggy-zoggy, ziggy-zoggy, hoi hoi hoi–it's Oktoberfest season in Beer City!
The unofficial kickoff is the fourth annual Fest of Ales, taking place on Center Street Promenade this Saturday, September 19, from noon to 4 p.m. There'll be 35 breweries taking part, mostly from Orange County, but with a little help from our neighbors: Ballast Point, Ninkasi, Strand, etc. There'll also be food from Anaheim-area restaurants, including Out of the Park Pizza and the Jägerhaus.
Tickets are $70 in advance and $80 at the gate, which includes unlimited beer tastes (up till they cut you off, you lush), unlimited food, and entertainment. They're available at festofales.com, but if you're looking to score $10 off your admission, bring money to the booth at the Downtown Anaheim Farmers Market on Thursday from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Designated drivers (food only) are $40.
