IMO, I'd go for any "Oktoberfestbier" or "Oktoberfest/Marzen". Either designation will mean you're getting the full 6-month-aged classic.

I brought 5 gallons of Augustiner helles back with me from Munich. Unfortunately it was gone in a few days. Great stuff!

Ist das "speck" an die links?
Ja freilich, noch einer Hefe Weizen...

Alles schmecht gut!!!

Yes.

bitte...

I would like a Livercheese with a sunnyside up egg, fried potatoes and a salad, please.

Leberkase doesn't have any liver or cheese in it AFAIK. It lastes a lot like out bologna only airier, more spongy instead of dense. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leberk%C3%A4s

Ist das "speck" an die links?
Is that bacon on the left?
Ja freilich, noch einer Hefe Weizen...
yes, sure, another Hefe Weizen.

Alles schmecht gut!!!
Everything tastes good.
