Goings-on this Saturday

A few food- and beverage-related events tomorrow, Saturday, Sept. 19. Let's hope the weather clears...

Free the Hops Oktoberfest, downtown Birmingham on historic Morris Avenue. German cuisine, live music, and more than 25 German and German-style American-made beers. Tickets are $15, which includes admission and a limited-edition beer glass. Premium beer will be sold for $3 a glass.  A limited amount of high-gravity beer will be available for $5 a glass. There will be two sessions -- noon to 4 p.m. and 6-10 p.m., with a limited number of tickets sold for each. Today's the last day to buy advance tickets: www.freethehops.org/oktoberfest/
