Of the “big six” Munich breweries allowed to serve at the official Oktoberfest—the exclusive group also includes Spaten and Paulaner—Hofbräu is the largest draw, and arguably the most popular Bavarian brew in beer gardens and halls across the U.S. Hofbräu Oktoberfestbier is probably the lightest on the Märzen color spectrum, but also one of the strongest—6.3% ABV due to its noticeably higher hop count. It’s still packed with all the rich malt components of its competitors, highlighted by nutty and fruity flavors. It’s another crisp, clean brew that pairs well German comfort food.
