Athena Fedshon

Feeling left out because you missed SurlyFest last weekend? There's still room for you at Harriet Brewery's annual Rauchfest, a similar celebration of craft beer, good food, live music, and local artists.

Starting at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, the brewery will be pouring its exclusive Rauchfest Lager, Oktoberfest/Marzen, Divine Oculust, Saison Nourrice "Sour", and more. There will also be a whole court of food trucks including AZ Canteen, Potter's Pasties, and Tollefson Family Pork, and one last minute add-on that's still TBA. Tickets are $15 and are available at the brewery or online from Harriet's website.

Mill City Museum and Farmers Market's 7th annual Oktoberfest celebration kicks off Saturday when the market opens at 8:00 a.m., but the real fun starts at 10:00 when they hand out beer samples from Fulton and whiskey from 2 Gingers. There will also be a brewing demo at Outdoor Cafe Kitchen led by Day Block Brewing and Midwest Brew Supply. The outdoor stuff is free but the Mill City Museum is charging a small fee for their indoor activities. 

Along with Schadenfreude, Surlyfest, WET, Misanthrope, Bitter Brewer and others, there's a new beer on tap at Surly's taproom this weekend. Damien, a black ale spawned from the usually discarded remnants of Surly Darkness (coming soon), is a dry-hopped beer made with Glacier and Chinook hops. The Anchor Fish & Chips food truck will be at their taproom tonight and Asian Invasion will be there starting at noon tomorrow.

Fulton will be tapping both War & Peace, an imperial coffee stout, and the Libertine, an imperial red ale at the Happy Gnome starting at 5:00 tonight. 

Gastrotruck will be at Indeed's taproom tonight and Hibachi Daruma food truck will be parked there tomorrow. 

612Brew's taproom will be closed for a private event tonight, but will be back in action on Saturday with Motley Crews food truck.
