Each booth contained different items for sale such as crafts, clothing, wood carvings, pottery and what Oktoberfest is not complete without beer steins. From Oct. 6 to the 8, Oktoberfest held its Houston Brewers Festival. At the Brewers Festival, various beer vendors present their finest beers for the public to sample, including their own specially brewed Oktoberfest beer.
