Who says Oktoberfest has to end in October? Certainly not us, and certainly not the Art Museum of Southeast Texas in Beaumont, which holds its Okto-like Art of Beer fund-raiser today. AMSET is promising some of the worlds finest beers along with hamburgers, bratwurst and German folk band Alpenfest. Were not sure where the Art of comes in. There isnt much brew-related about the museums current exhibits Tejas del Oeste al Este, featuring Chicano works of every variety from the El Paso Museum of Art, and Somethin Out of Nothin, showcasing the massive, makeshift totem poles of the local Felix Fox Harris though both are fun and sense-altering. Maybe Art with Beer wouldve been a better title. Either way, pour us a mug. 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. 500 Main Street in Beaumont. For information and reservations, call 409-832-3432 or visit www.amset.org. $45 to $50.
