  • This Jell-O wrestling scene from Bender's isn't even Freaktoberfest. Scared yet?
The wacky Schmaltz Brewing Company is celebrating its blood-red Halloween lager, Coney Island Freaktoberfest, with an eponymous event at Bender's (806 S. Van Ness at 19th St.) this Saturday, 7-9 p.m.

In case 22-ounce bottles of beer brewed with six malts, six hops, and an alcohol content of 6.66 percent (get it?) isn't quite enough to get your personal freak on, consider this: For Freaktoberfest, Schmaltz has laid on an appearance by the Hubba Hubba Revue. Comedy! Striptease! Variety acts! No less an authority than SF Weekly named Hubba Hubba 2009's Best Burlesque Revue, featuring Bunny Pistol, Pin Key Lee, Sid Scenic, and Honey Lawless.

So make sure you're over 21 and bring money. Five bucks gets you in the door; inside, you'll get $1 off pints of Schmaltz's Coney Island Lager, and find $5 bottles of Coney Island Human Blockhead. Get freaky, people.
