Well it’s October, so that means we’re gearing up for Halloween, apple orchards and all that fun stuff. But there’s also another event to look forward to this month: Oktoberfest! The traditional German festival is cause for a lot of fun, and a lot of drinking! I had the chance to speak with Beer and Wine expert Jim Laughren over the phone, and he gave us a whole bunch of info on the subject.

Jim is a certified Beer and Wine Educator, author of A Beer Drinker’s Guide to Knowing and Enjoying Fine Wine, and has appeared on ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC affiliates. He also knows a TON about the history of Oktoberfest. He told us a lot about beer, wine, how beer drinkers can get into wine, and the beginnings and evolution of Oktoberfest.
