This is sad news indeed.

Spotted the Choc Saturday,they had that and Marshalls Oktoberfest. I plan on trying both but they only had one 6 pack of Spaten and could not take the chance they would not be able to get more so I grabbed it. Spaten has been my favorite Oktoberfest for years.

Picked up an Ayinger Oktoberfest "Authentic Bavarian Festival Lager". I usually avoid the foreign beers, even if I really want to try them, because the local beer store has a low rate of turnover for these kinds of beers, and I don't want to get an old beer and be disappointed. Well, since this is this year's Oktoberfest beer, I knew it would at least be fresh.

WOW! I've had a few domestic craft "Oktoberfest" beers, but this one was awesome! Malty, yet crisp and clean at the same time. The pint went too quickly!

So I haven't tried it yet but I picked up Pyramid Oktoberfest.
I find that pyramid doesn't make beers that stand out, but sometimes that's what I want, a good solid session ale. A beer doesn't need 45 hops, 21 different malts or sea kelp and hot chili peppers to be good so we shall see.

Totally agree, this is the real deal! Reminds me to pick up some more.

Anyone who lives in the portland, or/ vancouver, wa area check out Gustavs. They have Paulaner and Spaten okto on tap and a ton of other good german beers. Myself, im not a hop head and all the beers they have on this tap list make me squeal like a teenage girl at a Beiber concert.

Spaten has always been the yardstick for me as what an Octoberfest is all about. I realize it is only one part of the spectrum but it is why I just am so constantly disappointed by Sam Adams (I buy it EVERY year hoping I will like it). It probably is somewhere in the range but it always tastes like...nothing...a complete void of flavor...at least by comparison.

I am sure I am being to harsh but it is because I love the style and the style is defined by the beers I have made and Spaten O-fest. When I type it, this makes me feel very narrow minded.
