Presented by Valley Discount Wine & Liquor, Hoptoberfest lets taste buds loose on a bounty of frothy pours. As many as 130 beers and a smattering of spirits anoint tasting glasses, letting beer connoisseurs expand their palates wider than that of a whale sommelier. A selection of food complements the diverse brews, and attendees can sit and listen or get up and groove while live bands electrify the air with popular tunes. All proceeds from the festival benefit the Seymour Ambulance Association and Ansonia Civil Defense Rescue Association.

Competitive ballroom dancers Martin Ramsauer and Chris Sabourin have been blazing across the dance floor since childhood. After years of experience at Fred Astaire studios—a national franchise cofounded by the legendary toe-tapper—and their competitions, the pair opened their own branch to share their decades' worth of experience with others.

They now helm a team of experienced instructors—including an award-winning Serbian dancer ranked on the World IDSF list of top couples—that shepherds students of all ages and skill levels through lessons that span the dance-style spectrum. Their low-pressure, customized private sessions allow enthusiastic teachers to fine-tune individual students' techniques and form, using their expert eyes and mechanical dancing shoes preprogrammed to do the Charleston. Patrons can learn how to cavort through classic waltz and foxtrot romps or swivel through the modern steps of salsa, swing, or samba. For dancers hoping to hoof it up in a social setting, the group practice parties provide a one-night extravaganza of instruction, demonstrations, and amateur firewalking.
