Local Bay Area breweries, food vendors and traditional Munich tunes gathered together in Oakland’s Dimond neighborhood for the annual Oaktoberfest beer festival.
Oakland breweries Linden Street Brewery, Oakland Brewing Company, Pacific Coast Brewing and San Leandro’s Drakes Brewing Company were pouring alongside breweries from all over the Bay Area. German themes were strongly present through the cuisine, such as strudel and bratwurst, and the homebrew competition featuring local area homebrewers.
The annual Oaktoberfest is hosted by the Dimond Improvement Association and the Dimond Business & Professional Association. Proceeds from the event are donated to community improvement projects to benefit the Dimond neighborhood.
