3.  Celebrate Hoppy Oktoberfest at the award-winning Mad Fox Brewing Company, Northern Virginia’s upscale brewpub, with an outdoor party that will take over Market Square on Saturday, September 28 from Noon until 6 pm. The event will extend the restaurant’s patio into the street and on Market Square, replicating the Munich festival grounds in downtown Falls Church, albeit on a smaller scale.  Small beer tents showcasing more than 30 craft beer selections and outdoor tables with seating will replace the traditional Festhalles, but the atmosphere will be no less jovial!
4.  From September 17th to October 31st, the intimate third floor Gallery of Trummer’s on Main will be transformed into an Austrian wine & beer tavern for an event playfully named TrummerFest. Owner and Mixologist Stefan Trummer grew up in Austria, and his roots will be on full display as the restaurant serves up remarkably traditional Austrian fare like his mother’s apple cake, traditional Austrian dishes, and unique sausages in honor of Oktoberfest.
5.  On Sunday, September 29th from 11:00am to 2:30pm, 2941 Restaurant (2941 Fairview Park Drive, Falls Church, VA, 22042; (703) 270-1500www.2941.com; @2941Restaurant) – located in Falls Church, VA just outside Washington D.C. – is inviting Autumn adventurers with a fondness for fall-inspired fare and beverages to enjoy an interactive Fall Harvest Festival.  Think Oktoberfest by way of Alsace, France compliments of French native Chef Chemel.Priced at $65 per person (all-inclusive/ children 10 & under are free), guests will have the opportunity to enjoy several hours of sipping, savoring, and socializing.  For tickets to 2941’s Fall Harvest Festival (11:00AM to 2:30PM) https://www.giftrocker.com/secure/Order/?h=cd4d0a5a

    Personally, I like Paulaner natural wheat because bubbles like cream, soft fragrant, like eating with light meals, most top.
