The 14th annual event, held along Campbell Avenue, will run from noon to 7:00 p.m., though beer taps will close at 6:00.

Admission for beer drinkers is $25 and includes a four ounce tasting glass and 10 drink tickets. Additional drink tickets can be purchased for $1 apiece, with a five ticket minimum. Non-drinkers and children can enjoy the festivities for free.

More than 100 types of beers from more than 50 local and international breweries will be served, according to event organizer Capitol City Brewing Company. There will also be German-inspired entertainment and food.

“Beer enthusiasts can listen to live Alpine folk music as they sample select handcrafted beers and enjoy authentic German cuisine from a variety of local vendors and Shirlington Village eateries,” Capitol City Brewing said, in a press release.

In advance of the event, Capitol City’s Shirlington location will begin offering two new Oktoberfest beers: Smoketoberfest and Dr. Punkinstein.
