From coast to coast, Oktoberfest is in full swing, keeping those Aussies who aren’t in Munich for the real deal content with lashings of Germanic beers, lederhosen, bagels and games. That’s not all that’s going on, of course, but the fests are certainly coming thick and fast.
So if you’re looking for craft beer-themed entertainment over the coming week, here’s a selection. If anything takes your fancy, full details can be found in the Crafty Diary here. And if your event isn’t listed but you wish it was, then send details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
