Novemberfest is, according to Beer Director Greg Engert, "based loosely on the German tradition dating back to the 1300's where villagers would stock up onprovisions and seek shelter in their local churches for the wintery weather ahead." Rustico's version will be "an outdoor block party that plans to prepare and celebrate the move to cooler temperatures replete with at least 40 sensational and seasonal craft brews playing center stage to an arena of good food and good fun." 

Expect to see Port City's Long Black Veil and a cask of Optimal Wit condiitioned with RASPBERRY AND LEMON GUMMY BEARS!

See ya there.
