Hey, it's finally fall -- the party month. The time of beer, Halloween costumes and ... BEER!

And this year, it's the season of Octo-Beer Fest! The first year of a Yakima celebration that features brews from nine local breweries, eats from the Hop Nation kitchen and two smokin' local bands -- Yakima's Gloom and Ellensburg favorite CobraHawk. The party also includes games and a kids area.

But it's more than a party. Ticket proceeds benefit one of Yakima's favorite concert venues, the Seasons Performance Hall.

It's all going on at Hop Nation Brewing Company, 31 N. First Ave., from 7-10 p.m. on Oct. 13.

Here's your brew menu:

  • Hop Nation Brewing Company
  • Single Hill Brewing Company
  • Wandering Hop Brewery
  • Yakima Craft Brewing Co.
  • Redifer Brewing Company
  • Bale Breaker Brewing Company
  • Cowiche Creek Brewing Company
  • Icicle Brewing Company
  • Valley Brewing Co.

Get tickets -- $10 a head -- right here. The price gets you into the festival, plus scrip for two beers.

Costumes are encouraged. Fun is required!
