Oktoberfest, firefighter beer contest return for 2nd outing
Northwest firefighters, from left, Sean Dibbern, Jason Garzon and Brian Sturgeon go through the steps of making home-brewed beer at the Thunder Canyon Brewery on Friday. The firefighters will be competing in the Second Annual Oktoberfest, complete with a beer-making challenge, on Oct. 22. Dibbern is looking to win for a second consecutive year with his chocolate-raspberry brew.
Northwest firefighter Jason Garzon, at right, works with Brian Sturgeon to funnel a beer brew into another container, during a short presentation Friday at the Thunder Canyon Brewery on how to get a home-brewed beer started. Oktoberfest will be held in the Foothills Mall parking lot, just outside of Thunder Canyon Brewery on Oct. 22. Tickets are available online at www.brew.nwfirefighters.org.
