This Friday, OutSpoken Brewing along with the Canal District is having their first ever Oktoberfest event. There will be beer, pretzels, and of course, lederhosen. 

The sold-out event will be held under the roof at the Rink at The Train Station on Oct. 15 from 4 p.m. until midnight. 

“We’ve been wanting to have an event like this for a while now, so we’re excited,” said Kaitlynn Cruickshank, events coordinator at OutSpoken Brewing. 

“It should be a lot of fun for everyone, especially during times like these,” she said.
