What is Oktoberfest?

With the new season approaching we are starting to get many new October beers in and many people celebrate Oktoberfest.  But many people don’t really know what Oktoberfest is or what type of beers there are.  Oktoberfest started as a German festival but now is a worldwide phenomenon. The festival runs from September 17th to October 3rd in Munich, Germany. The Lagers differ from where you are in the world.  Two big examples are America and Germany, In America we tend to have slightly sweet beers known as Marzen while In Germany you will find more paler beers. Now that you know a little more about Oktoberfest are you going to celebrate this year? If so stop by and grab some Oktoberfest Beers today!
