Grovetoberfest hits Coconut Grove [Photo Essay]

Coconut Grove’s annual Oktoberfest celebration – aptly named Grovetoberfest – took place on Oct. 14 and featured over 500 craft beers, stouts, lagers for lederhosen-donning attendees to sample as they strolled along the newly opened Regatta Park. This year’s theme was Back to the Future and the festival even had its very own DeLorean.
