*BEER SNOB POST ALERT*

I have to say that michelob gets it because they are about the only ones with the cojones to call it a Marzen.

Oktoberfest is a festival, not a beer style.

SORRY!

carry on.

The best commercial example imo is Ayinger. Nothing else comes close.

I've always liked Sam Adams Oktoberfest. I know its probably not the most accurate to style, or the best available...but I think its pretty tasty and I like it. I also like that I can find it on tap at pretty much any local bar/restaurant this time of year.

Anyone tried the St. Arnold October fest? I bought a 6 pack and it was decent, but I'm not sure i've ever had a proper Marzen style anyways.

I just had a Hacker-pschor and it was good. I all so tasted Ayinger and it didn't even come close to the Hacker-pschor.

It really varies year to year. Frankly the best Marzen I have had was a split, between Vetter Marzen (Only available in Heidelberg, GE) and Hacker-Pschor at their tent in Munich during the fest. I really dont care for their import all that well, so I think that the beer, combined with the fest, and the incredible thirst for festbier all played a roll. Marzen is one of my favorite styles, I do wish I could lager.
