Red Clay Brewery will host its inaugural ‘Red Oaktoberfest’ event Oct. 20 from 4-11 p.m.
Modeled after Germany’s Oktoberfest festival, the free, family-friendly event will correlate with Opelika Main Street’s On the Tracks that night.
John Corbin, brewery co-owner, said they will distribute bratwursts and soft pretzels outside, and offer samples inside of their Mackenzie’s Scottish Ale and specialty fall brew ‘Red Oaktober’.
“It’s (Red Oaktober) traditional in a sense that it is a lager, it’s going to be a little more of a lighter version, but we add some chocolate malt to it to darken it up a little bit, to give it a red-colored hue. We’ve brewed it for two years now, during this time of year,” Corbin said. “This is probably the best batch that we’ve made and it’s really, really good.”
