SHREWSBURY, NJ - Monmouth Country Historical Association will host its second annual Oktoberfest Celebration on Friday, October 21st, from 7-10 pm. Held at the 300-year old Allen House, which is located at the intersection of Broad and Sycamore Streets at Shrewsbury’s historic four corners, this fun-filled event is for beer drinkers and historians alike!  The Allen House was the town’s most noted tavern in its day.  Attendees will enjoy an all-you-can-eat-&-drink evening of local beer, wine, and barbeque while experiencing a private tour of one of the oldest remaining structures in Monmouth County.
