Doctoberfest 2010

This weekend is Doctoberfest in downtown Griffin, Georgia.  Why is it called Doctoberfest?  Griffin is the home of famous wild west gunman Doc Holliday.  He is best known for his gun fight in the OK Corral with Wyatt Earp.  Interestingly, he is the cousin (by marriage) of Gone With The Wind writer Margaret Mitchell.

This fest boasts an awesome beer lineup. There is VIP and General Admission.  Both impressive.
