It wasn't beer beer goggles, but 3-D glasses that were causing some funny looks at a beer festival in Palmerston North at the weekend.

The inaugural Oktoberfest was held in the city on Saturday in the Regent Arcade.

Craft breweries from around the country were on hand to serve their products, including Tuatara Brewery, which offered a beer with a 3-D label.

Trying to make sense of it all was Paul Kirkby, pictured, with Basia McIntosh watches from behind the bar.

The event was held from noon until the small hours, with live music from a diverse range of acts including TOM and Ukephoria.
