HausFe3st, the brewery’s twist on Oktoberfest, is back for the third year in a row. In addition to beers in collectable steins, the will be 31 local restaurants and shops at vendor booths until 5 p.m. Two live bands will perform: The Oom-Pah Daddies, also known as Baba Yaga Orkestar, will perform polka music from 12-3 p.m., and the blues rock band Desabelle will follow them from 4-7 p.m.

The brewery is promoting four of its own beers at the event: a marzen, a weissbier, a helles and a doppelbock. Inside, more beers from the brewery are available on tap, as are a guest series of ciders and meads. There will also be activities for kids, including free face painting from 1-4 p.m., a dachshund parade at 3 p.m., and lawn games.

Admission to the event is free, but limited edition steins are $20. Refills in the stein are available for $5.

Craig and Veronica Bradley opened Vector Brewing in April 2020. Despite its creation in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, the brewery survived. Vector focuses on brewing classic styles of beer, as well as wild fermentation and barrel aging. They also serve sourdough pizza and wine.
