The wine and beer were flowing freely at the second annual Stein & Wine Fest, which was held Thursday, Oct. 4, at the Broadway Ballroom Event Center in Alexandria.

The event was sponsored by the Alexandria Sertoma Club and Tri-State Manufacturing Association, and featured samples from several breweries and a winery.

A stein holding competition was also held, and German-style food was also available at the event. Proceeds went to benefit the local Sertoma club and youth manufacturing programs.
