Summer is gone, Oktoberfest is done and there's no more beer. Kidding! There is so much beer. So much. And you can continue to frolic in its froth at Humboldt Hoptoberfest, the annual fundraiser for the Blue Lake Education Foundation, at Perigot Park on Saturday, Oct. 14, from 1 to 5 p.m. ($35, $30 advance).
How much beer, you ask? Well, the taps will be flowing with beverages from (deep breath) Mad River Brewing, Six Rivers Brewery, Redwood Curtain Brewing Co., Lost Coast Brewery, Eel River Brewing, Humboldt Cider Co., The Booth Brewing Co., Humboldt Regeneration, Humboldt Homebrewers Association, North Coast Brewing Co., Mendocino Brewing Co., Sierra Nevada, Lagunitas, Third Street Aleworks, Alaskan Firestone Walker Brewing Company, Bear Republic, Ninkasi Brewing Co. and Anderson Valley Brewing Co.
Still with us? Then sip in the Blue Lake sunshine with the soft, tropical sounds of the Blue Dragon Steel Band, "Cali rock" from Headshine, Americana from La Patinas and what had better be some mind-blowing jazz from Orjazzmic.
