What's better than one beer festival? Yeah, a second beer festival.

Hitting the same weekend as the Festival of Beers, Gene's Haufbrau is hosting its own Oktoberfest on Saturday and Sunday, October 3-4.

Not only will they be sporting their library of 150 beers, but they'll be offering up music, and a dual sausage eating and beer wench contest. 

Playing on Saturday is The Thrusters, The Dixie Ramblers, and Lindsay Holler. On Sunday they switch to an oompah focus with Hanz Schmidt's German Band, The Blue Plantation Band, and The Secrets.

It's $7 to get in. Rain or shine. A portion of proceeds will go to the Charleston Animal Society.

Gene's is at 817 Savannah Highway in West Ashley. (843) 225-GENE.
