$4 beer is sobering thought

September 25, 2013 

My husband and I have been enjoying the numerous church picnics and homecomings our area has to offer. They are affordable, friendly and accessible. What a shock to go to the Oktoberfest and be faced with $4 beers. Anywhere else this summer it has been $2.50. Why so high? We're rethinking next summer's entertainment schedule -- no Oktoberfest for us.
