Nine Best Oktoberfest Beers

Didn't make it to Munich? Kick back with these seasonal suds, from Bavaria's finest to American microbrew marvels.

When it comes to American renditions of the German classic, Great Lakes Oktoberfest is hard to beat. The Cleveland-based brew—a two-time gold medal winner at the World Beer Championships—is a frothy, delicious amber lager that combines toasty malts and spicy hops as well as any of its predecessors did before. The beer’s delicate medium-full body has a dry finish, highlighted by fragrant noble hops. For originality’s sake, Great Lakes incorporated raisins into the malting process—they combine with sweet caramel and toffee for one heck of a flavor profile. Great Lakes is a must-have for anyone who considers himself an Oktoberfest snob.
