Tickets are on sale for an event in Avila Beach that often sells out. This year will be the 8th annual Firestone Walker Oaktoberfest at Avila Beach Golf Resort.
The event happens October 6th and is a tribute to Germany's famous Oktoberfest tradition, as well as Firestone-Walkers choice to brew with oak barrels. The party in Avila will include live music, a Beer Olympics competition, German-style fare, a "best Bavarian attire" contest and several beer gardens. There will also be a ceremonial tapping of a 60-gallon oak barrel filled with Firestone Walker's seasonal Oaktoberfest beer.
"It's all about having fun, embracing the season and supporting a good cause." says Jamie Smith, vice president of marketing at Firestone Walker Brewing Company.
The Firestone Walker Oaktoberfest runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tickets are $25 when purchased in advance and $30 at the door. Tickets include admission to the event, a commemorative half-liter beer stein, and one beer. Food and additional beer will be available for purchase. Attendees must be 21 or older. Tickets are available online at www.Oaktoberfest.com. They can also be purchased at Firestone Walker Brewing Company's visitor center in Paso Robles, the California Mid-State Fairgrounds in Paso Robles, Boo Boo Records in San Luis Obispo, and at all Vallitix ticket
A portion of the event proceeds will benefit Woods Humane Society.
