Old Post Tavern Hosts Oktoberfest

Oktoberfest is in full swing and many of our local haunts are celebrating the "holiday" with hearty servings of bratwurst and beer. On Thursday, October 20th, Old Post Tavern in Fairfield is hosting their own sausage-fest by partnering with Twisted Vine Wine Shop to deliver both German wine and beer pairings with their otherwise traditional German menu.
