It's not exactly commercial, but I just had to mention this new Oktoberfest I just tried!

The Local brewery (Apocalypse Ale Works) just partnered with another brewery a couple hours away (3 Brothers) to make "Bropocalypse," an authentic German Oktoberfest. Since it was an excellent beer, made sure to swing by the brewery/LHBS to congratulate the brewmaster. He said they brewed 900 gallons, so hopefully I'll be able to enjoy it for the whole month of October!

Good beer always deserves recognition.

I agree - walked into the "lame-est" restaurant / bar in the world this past weekend...the closest thing they had to craft beer (didnt even have Guiness) was SA Oktoberfest....oh my, what a waste of good water. I couldn't help but think, this is bestowed upon the American public to pass as an Octoberfest...?

Luckily I'm here in SE Michigan, between Great Lakes and Bells, well heck, Frankenmuth, even Founders and Rochester Mills for that matter, I've got nothing to complain about - except getting dragged into this place against my will when so many more good options await.

OK...I fel a little better that at least one person agrees with me. Just last week had Goose Island's Oktoberfest....not bad. Tonight is Left Hand and I have high hopes because I LOVE their Milk Stout.

I'm having a ninkasi o'fest. A few days ago I had a Weihenstephaner okto. Both of them are pretty pale in color. I'm going to have to look up the original oktoberfest beer, since I thought they were amber to copper in color. This ninkasi isn't what I think of when I think oktoberfest.

I found the bock a little too sweet. Great flavor, but a touch too caremelly. I wouldn't doubt it was to style, though.

As far as an octoberfest that is easy to find I prefer Gordon Biersch over Sam Adams and Becks although those ones are quite good as well.
