Amanti Vino's 4th Annual Oktoberfest

by Melody Kettle

It's time for Oktoberfest!  Amanti Vino's 4th Annual Oktoberbest will benefit  Intensive Therapeutics, an extraordinary occupational therapy group for children with special needs.

"Attendees can beat the crowds with VIP Tickets, which provide admission at  6.30pm, for early tasting and a reserved mezzanine area with exclusive high-end wines and gourmet treats, plus full General Admission access and balcony privileges to enjoy the band above the fray.

General Admission starts at 7:30 and the price includes all you can eat, drink (wine and beer) and all the grooves you can dance to, with music from Jersey City's finest, the super-hot One and Nines. "A band of the highest order," noted one critic, "the songwriting of guitarist Jeff Marino makes respectful nods to the Stax sound, early stages of Motown, and blue-eyed brethren like Van Morrison and Steve Winwood...."

Participants confirmed thus far include:  Weyerbacher, Nash Distributors, Allied Beverage Group, Hunterdon Brewing Co., Duvel, Moortgaat, Unibroue, Brooklyn Brewery. NJ Beer Co.,  Lagunitas, Kohler Distributing Company and Stone Brewing Company.  More to come -- check Amanti Vino's website for updates!"
