MARION, Iowa (KCRG) - Beer lovers have the chance to try a variety of local craft beers from around Eastern Iowa and beyond on Saturday as Oktoberfest returns to Uptown Marion. Along with the more than 28 different breweries on site, people can take part in hammerschlagen, a traditional stein-holding contest and even a keg rolling relays. The event is also a fundraiser for the Winter Lights program, which helps fund Marion's community beautification during the holiday season and the Iowa Brewer's Guild Backpocket Brewing in Coralville is one of the hosts of this year's event along with Marion Chamber of Commerce.
