Chatham County Beer Festival

September 22 is the first day of fall, which means pumpkin-flavored everything, weekend football tailgates and switching out wardrobes for cooler weather. Over in Germany, the start of fall means gearing up for one of the most important holidays of their calendar year – Oktoberfest. As the world’s largest folk festival, six million people flock to the streets of Munich each year for community, celebration and, of course, the beer. No need to start the process of renewing your passport or booking flights, the second annual Chatham County Beer Festival is bringing your favorite brews to your backyard.
