    Austin Fermentation Festival

    This is a free educational event celebrating all things fermented in Central Texas. Featuring 13 workshops focused on fermented foods and beverages; local chefs and vendors with wine, beer, cider, and other drinks; and – this is Austin, after all – some live music, too. Right there in the big library Downtown and (the music, we reckon) on its nearby lawn.
    Sun., Oct. 21, 11am-4pm. Free.

    North by Northwest: Oktoberfest

    You know what'd be good right about now, fellow workaday toiler? A weekend full of beer, brats, and bands. That's craft beer and bratwursts and live bands, of course. And, lucky us, it's all happening at this festival of Germanically inflected cuisine and frivolity, during which there's also a stein hoisting contest, a brat eating contest, and – pardon us while we squeeeee – a canine costume contest! With a separate wiener-dog category! October, you're getting better every minute.
    Oct. 20-21. Sat., noon-9pm; Sun., 11am-7pm. $2 and up.
