The 200th anniversary of Oktoberfest is but a distant hangover in Munich, Germany, but in Los Angeles, it's still chugging along. LA Beer Week continues through the weekend and so do many Oktoberfest celebrations and special events. Here are a few of the tastiest...

  • Pourtal in Santa Monica isn't wasting time wine-ing about Oktoberfest being about beer, they're hiking up their lederhosen and offering a special wine tasting event on October 14 with unique offerings from Germany and Austria.
  • Downtown Culver City is planning their first Oktoberfest for October 20 with seasonal, artisanal and limited-time beers and Oktoberfest-inspired treats from Downtown Culver City restaurants and bars. Drink, shop and check out some galleries to the swinging sounds of The Petrojvic Blasting Company, an instrumental ensemble described as "a blend of New Orleans Dixie and Balkan folk."
