WEEKEND PICKS: Oktoberfest, Aquarela And Mexican Wrestling

Hey it’s the weekend…and you’re all about the fun. No worries. From the nation’s coolest beer festivals, movies and music to cutting edge TV – we’ve got your back big-time.  Plus we’ve a special weekend beer pick for you too, because we know you’ll be drinking!

DC Brau’s Oktoberfest Bash (Washington, DC) – DC Brau is kicking off the season with a Brau-style Oktoberfest celebration at the brewery on Saturday, August 17th from 1-6pm complete with Oompa band, brats and of course beer, In addition to the release of this year’s Oktoberfest lager, DC Brau will be pouring Keller Pils and El Hefe Speaks in its outdoor beer garden all afternoon. Tickets include German-style offerings from Smoke & Ember and a souvenir beer stein.

On The Big Screen – We don’t normally make a documentary a weekend pick unless it’s spectacular and needs to be seen on a big screen. And this documentary is spectacular and needs to be seen on the big screen. AQUARELA takes audiences on a deeply cinematic journey through the transformative beauty and raw power of water. Filmed at a rare 96 frames-per-second, the film is a visceral and visual tour of the world’s waters from Russia’s Lake Baikal to Miami in the throes of Hurricane Irma to Venezuela’s mighty Angels Falls.

Get Weird This Weekend (Milwaukee, WI) – MobCraft is turning six this weekend and celebrating by returning its Weird Fest Block Party outside their taproom on August 17th. Come for the uber-special Anniversary Stouts releases, but stay for the Lucha Libre Mexican Wrestling matches that will be going on throughout the day.




We’re into IPA’s bigtime here at ACB (but who isn’t) and Big Boss Brewing just sent a new one our way that we really enjoyed. Brewed using local Carolina Rye Heirloom Malt, Big Boss Miss NC is a 6.5% double dry-hopped Hazy IPA with massive  melon, papaya, mango and grapefruit notes..
