Oktoberfest events once again dot the calendar this week, with festivities both large and small happening in all corners of the Metroplex. The number of events is too numerous to summarize in a single paragraph, so be sure to check the listings below for seasonal celebrations being held near you.

As for other goings on, Noble Rey Brewing Co. will mark the occasion of its second year in business with an anniversary bash on Saturday. In addition to food and live music, the event will feature over 25 Noble Rey brews on tap, including a pair created in collaboration with Intrinsic Smokehouse & Brewery.

Elsewhere, other items worth a look this week include the Texas Ale Project Good to Go Camo Crawl, which occurs on Saturday in Deep Ellum. Also on Saturday, Grapevine Craft Brewery will host a Donut & Beer Pairing featuring pastries from Doughboy Doughnuts. Then Sunday, it's time for a new round of Bierocks & Beer Pairing Flights at LUCK, this time with brews from Legal Draft Beer Co. assuming the spotlight.

Prost!
