Saint Arnold’s Oktoberfest 2010

Saint Arnold’s Oktoberfest 2010 is here, and the folks from the local brewery are ready to tap a cask or two of what Saint Arnold spokesperson Lennie Ambrose promises is world-class quality beer. If it sounds like Ambrose is bragging, he has a right to: St. Arnold knocked it out of the park at the Great American Beer Festival in Denver a few weekends ago.
