While so much of craft beer is about creativity, tradition is equally important. Oktoberfest is the season to highlight that heritage, which Insight will be doing this Saturday. Find a German-inspired malty Marzen lager, a sour Berliner Weisse, and the brewpub’s regular lineup of flagship and seasonal offerings on tap. The German theme continues with food from Black Forest Inn and entertainment such as Hammerschlagen and a stein-hoisting competition. The hoisting contest starts at 4 p.m., but don’t underestimate the strength required to win: Those beer steins are big and heavy. You can also buy a custom-branded stein, which holds one liter of beer (33 ounces in American terms), while supplies last.
