It’s that time of year to break out the old plaid flannel and head over to your local craft beer taproom to sample some fall beers.

2021 Oktoberfest Favorites

September is an exciting month for us and our fellow beer enthusiasts.

The Oktoberfest festival in Munich, Germany is the largest beer festival in the world and typically attracts a modest crowd of about 6 million people each year. Despite its name, the 16 to 18 day event usually runs from mid/late September to the first Sunday in October.

Here in the states, the festival’s popularity is growing quickly and tons of breweries are releasing their own variations of traditional German styles.

Fun traditions include showing off a worn in pair of Lederhosen for the fellas and a stylish dirndl for the ladies—all while drinking a stein of your favorite Marzen style lager.

Here’s a list of our favorite Oktoberfest inspired beers from this year that are perfect for the transition into the fall season:

Oktoberfest – Sierra Nevada (Chico, CA)
Marzen style lager, crisp with a caramel flavor for a slight sweetness, smooth, balanced and easy to drink. 5.5% ABV.

Oktoberfest – Great Lakes Brewing Company (Cleveland, OH)
Marzen style lager, malty with a medium body, slight spice, enjoyable! 6.5% ABV.

Samuel Adams OktoberFest – Boston Beer Company (Boston, MA)
Sweet caramel notes, malt forward, smooth. 5.3% ABV.
