BERNARDS TWP., NJ - It's a charity event that each fall draws dozens of microbrewers and hundreds of their fans to drink up for a good cause: the St. James Men of Charity's Harvest Fest and NJ Microbrew night at St. James in Basking Ridge. 

This Nov. 5 was the 8th year for the event, with craft brewers from throughout the area. Cuisine is German Oktoberfest and the musical vibes are provided by local musician Joe Arbadji.

Funds raised go to help local families in need, said Glenn Booth, who helps each year to bring the event together.

Here are some scenes from this year's event:
