This Saturday one of the Albany areas premiere beer brewing companies is celebrating Oktoberfest, and not only will you be able to enjoy the German festivities but it's all for a good cause too.

If you are from the Albany area, especially Troy then you know all about Brown's Brewing Company.    They produce some of the best locally brewed beer in Upstate, NY and also have some pretty killer food to go along with it.  This weekend they are doing their  fourth annual Oktoberfest on Saturday, and part of the proceeds will go to benefit the Rensselaer Land Trust.

It's a $5 cover charge/donation at the door and that money goes to the Land Trust.  Just in case you aren't clear on what the Land Trust is, it's what keeps the Tomhannock Reservoir clean.  The reservoir is the water source that Brown's uses to brew their beer not to mention it is the main water source for the City of Troy.  So $5 to keep the water clean isn't so much to ask.

The event will kick off right after the Troy Chowderfest wraps up and goes until 11p.  It will be full of German food to purchase, cash bar and live music from Flood Road Bluegrass, The Fritz Brothers Polka Band (it wouldn't be Oktoberfest without polka!), and The Lustre Kings will wrap things up.

You can visit Brown's official website for more information.
