October is upon us already, which means it’s time to toast fall German style. Check out these Oktoberfest deals around town, and get your beer on!

Over at ~SCHMIDT’S~ in the Mission, you’ll find a bunch of special eating and drinking options from October 1st-31st. They’ll be serving five special Märzen beers over the course of the month, or you can check out an Oktoberfest beer flight with three different beers plus a pretzel roll and a side of German mustard for $14. In addition to their regular menu options, there will be sausage sampler plates to go along with your beers. For $18, check out the plate with three sausages, or for $24, you’ll get five different sausages. Both plates include potato salad, sauerkraut, and mustard. They’re open for dinner Sun-Mon 5pm-10pm and Tue-Sat 5pm-11pm. Happy hour is 5pm-7pm every day and brunch is 11am-3pm Sat-Sun. 2500 Folsom St. at 20th St., 415-401-0200.

If a party is more your style, the ~PRESIDIO SOCIAL CLUB~ has you covered. On Sunday September 30th, they’ll be throwing a Bavarian-style fest of their own on their hopefully sunny back deck (stay away, Karl the fog!)), with sausage samplers and German beers. Sausage plates with three links and a pint of beer will be available for $10 during the party, which will be from 11am-7pm. You’ll also find sausage plates in addition to the regular menu during the month of October. The party will be the kickoff for this month’s Sunday Supper series, which will feature a whole roasted pig with braised red cabbage and German-style potatoes, plus apple strudel to finish. The suppers will start at 5pm every Sunday in October and cost $35 per person.

For more sausage and beer offerings, you can hit up ~JASPER’S CORNER TAP~ for a special Oktoberfest sampler plate with spicy beer sausage, whiskey fennel sausage, two mustards, and a pretzel with smoked cheese fondue. The plate comes paired with Paulaner Oktoberfest Märzen beer for $19, or you can get the plate solo for $14 or the beer solo for $7. The sampler plate will be available from now until the end of October, during lunch and dinner. Lunch is every day from 11am-5pm, and dinner is Sun-Wed 5pm-10pm and Thu-Sat 5pm-11pm.
