The Great Southern Brewing Company, located at 424 S. Gay St., is throwing
an all-day party to celebrate Oktoberfest this Saturday, Oct. 16, from 2

Festivities will take place outside on the promenade behind the Great

event, with all proceeds benefiting the Knoxville Zoo.

In addition to the numerous brews, there will be authentic German food and
