It's often claimed that Plato said, "He was a wise man who invented beer," right before he himself invented belching the ancient Greek alphabet. Let out your inner philosopher with this Groupon.

$34 for a Beer Socialite Admission Package ($69 Value)

Like every general-admission attendee, Beer Socialites get unlimited samples of 150 different craft beers, access to the games arena’s bouts of corn hole and human bowling, and the sweet serenades of live musicians. Additionally, they get one-hour early access to the festival, plus a souvenir backpack and pint glass to make traversing the grounds that much easier.

Sam Adams Octoberfest

Within its first year of production, Samuel Adams' beer was being distributed to Germany, so it's no surprise the notable brewery has since expanded to host its own Oktoberfest. The fifth-annual Sam Adams Octoberfest—held on September 19 and 20—packs 16 days of merrymaking into one weekend in the spirit of Bavarian tradition, with authentic food and music. High-voltage polka group Terry Cavanagh and the Alpine Express provide the event's soundtrack. Of course, Bavarian cuisine and seasonal brews are the focus of the fall festival, but they aren't its only authentic elements. The weekend also includes a Miss Octoberfest contest, whose winner is awarded a crown of artfully woven pretzels.
