Beer & Wine

Grovetoberfest 2013 Fashion: Lederhosen, Vikings, Sgt. Pepper (Photos)

Grovetoberfest is a party, no doubt. With more than 200 beers, music, and a day with friends in Coconut Grove's Peacock Park, the day always turns out to be one of the most festive, with people dressing in beer hats, dirndls, and superhero costumes.

This year, event director Tony Albelo gave people an extra incentive to dress up for the event -- half-price admission and a special entrance to anyone in costume. The result: an early beer-themed Halloween party. Some people even brought snacks -- worn as jewelry. Take a look at the best costumes we encountered.
