For all you inner-west craft beer junkies. You know who you are.

Thank you, Germany, for giving us yet another reason to splurge on our favourite fermented beverage. Oktoberfest is getting an Aussie do-over this year, as Oktoberwest takes over Sydney's inner west, the craft beer capital of Australia.

You'll find Young Henrys, Willie The Boatman, Wayward Brewing Co., The Grifter Brewing Co., Batch Brewing Co, Sauce Brewing Co, and Malt Shovel Brewery providing the beer. Aside from the opportunity to sample limited edition brews, there'll also be food trucks, Brewery Bingo and an absolutely killer party.

Oh, and of course there'll be tunes. Nostalgia cover band Birdman or The Unexpected Virtue of a Tony Hawk Pro Skater Cover Band will blast the beats while you sit back with your pint, while DJ Don Benet will do his best Kraftwerk impersonation, providing some much-needed German vibes. Keep an ear out also for The Lockhearts, local band Scabz, as well as Frenzel Rhomb's Lindsey McDougall, with more to be announced.
