One of my favorite beer styles is coming due right now - Oktoberfest. What are your favorites - domestic or import?

I have mine, but I'll offer them later in the thread!

Spaten is my favorite Oktoberfest bier.

Which, the local Costco has for 19.99 a case.

Edit: Sam Adams makes a good oktoberfest as well.

I really don't have a real favorite Oktoberfest beer because way back in 1975 when I went to my first Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany I planned on having 1 liter in each tent of Munich's big 6 breweries.

I have been to the O'fest at least 12 times.

I always start with a Paulaner or Spaten though.

.

I attempted the same task in 1986. Nope, I didn't make it either. Made it to the first four, eating and drinking in each barn. You just gota love those roast chickens and pretzels. Between barn 4 and barn five, I had a pickled herring and onion kaiser roll and that one did me in. Nope, nothing else for me.

But I do still like Octoberfest style brews. I'll be attempting my own next March but, to this date, my favorite is Pauliner Marzen.

I was just going to make this same post today

I've only had Beck's and Sam Adams Octoberfests. Looking forward to trying some others this year... this is one of my favorite styles, and I don't have the setup to make it myself!

I used to like Sam Adam's Oktoberfest but I'm afraid to buy it now since I've become such a beer snob. If i can find a single bottle of it somewhere I'll revisit it.

You misunderstood me...I've made ALL 6 breweries EVERY TIME, except for the 1 time my wife was with me.
