The three-day celebration, beginning Oct. 20, will mark the stateside debut of some 60 German beers from Reinheits Boten, a family of independent German craft breweries that was brought here in December by Williamsburg-based importer Liquid Projects. They’ll be pouring exclusively, so if you’re looking for Beck’s, tough shnitz. Then again, if you’re looking for Beck’s, you probably wouldn’t be paying $40 ($5 more for a reserved seat) to attend an Oktoberfest. Actually, the price of admission isn’t that much of a glass-boot kick to the face. After all, it includes a free liter of beer and live music from acts like the Heimatklange Band, who you may have seen at the 80th birthday celebration of Ridgewood’s Gottscheer Hall, and the Bratwurst Boys, who do polka renditions of songs by Elton John, Daft Punk, and the Beatles.
