Every year, Octfest gets better and better. This year, the beer and music festival landed at Knockdown Center in Queens, where thousands of attendees flocked to sample beers (and more) from dozens of breweries and rock out to a killer lineup of bands, including Parquet Courts, Mogwai, Empath, METZ, and more.
