Sam Adam's Oktoberfest is my favorite beer, ever. It's so "decent', they sell a bazillion cases of it every fall. Maybe if you can find some of the German imported ones to try, they can be quite nice.

Let us know what you chose, and enjoy this great style!

I think my favorite so far is the weihenstephaner oktoberfest. Had a large stein of it at Gustavs on tap. Oh such a beautiful style of beer.

Spaten & Hofbräu would be kind of classic, in my mind. I actually really enjoy both Sam Adams and Leinenkugel's.

I don't regret it.
They are selling those glasses at the grocery store for a buck so I grabbed two.

Next time I hit up the bottle shop, they'll hopefully have more fall beers out and I'll stock up on the imports.

Free State Brewery Octoberfest from Lawrence Ks is the best.
