Nine Best Oktoberfest Beers

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

Another brewery rich in Bavarian history, Paulaner was founded in the 17th century, back when monks brewed the beer for comically drunken friars. Paulaner is one of the most popular beers in all of Deutschland, and the brand’s Oktoberfest-Märzen is a staple at Munich Oktoberfest. The clear, amber-colored lager is similar to Festbier in its transparency and frothiness, with a prominent flavor that can best be described as “bready.” The sweet, toasted malts are finished with zesty herbal hops, and the beer has a nice amount of carbonation compared to its competition.
