    Sure an' this place is up in Round Rock (roll those arrrs, citizen!), but damned if the popular Irish pub isn't compelling enough for a drive under normal circumstances. And Oktoberfest, we'll insist, is at least a skoshie beyond normal – especially at Cork & Barrel, with the Irish gone briefly Germanic, with a steinholding competition and Bavarian costume contest(there's one for your pets, too), and even a root-beer tasting and lebkuchen-decorating station for the kiddos. Also, jah, live music on Saturday – and pretzels and schnitzel and kartoffelsalat and homemade apple strudel more on the menu all weekend long.
    Oct. 1-2. Sat., 2-10pm; Sun., 2-9pm. $38-65.

    The Hajimaleki Brothers and their acclaimed culinary crew host a family-friendly Oktoberfest that features German food, beer, live music, face painting, costume contests, and more. Enjoy some freshly grilled brats on a pretzel bun with sauerkraut, pork shank with pickled red cabbage and beer mustard on slider rolls, giant-sized gingersnap cookies, and more – abetted by fine draughts from Independence Brewing Co., Friends and Allies, and Whitestone Brewery. Oh, and the Jagermeister folks'll be there to build you a few potent cocktails as well. Bonus: A pet adoption pop-up from Austin Dog Rescue.

    Oktoberfest in Fredericksburg

    This is the big one, yes, the 42nd annual celebration of Oktoberfest out in the most deeply Germanic heart of the Texas Hill Country – and the Polka Capital of this state, no less! – featuring a weekend of oompah music at its best, the finest of German food and drink, local artisan markets, and a children’s area for all manner of family fun. Jah, that’s three days, five stages, and more festivity than you can shake a giant pretzel at, liebschen!
    Sept. 30-Oct. 2. Fri., 6pm-12mid; Sat., 10am-12mid; Sun., 11am-6pm
