Oktoberfest Beers

If you’re looking for the best beers to try this Oktoberfest, look no further!

We’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite Oktoberfest beers for you to enjoy. From traditional German lagers to pumpkin ales, there’s something for everyone on this list.

So grab a stein and get ready to celebrate Oktoberfest in style! Raise a toast to the season!

1. Samuel Adams 

Vibrant golden tone with a sizable head of cream tint. richly flavored with notes of apricot jam, hop flowers, Portobello mushrooms, and freshly baked bread.

The aromas of clean cereal and malt are supported by undertones of maple, sweet spice, and hop oils on the palate, which is rich and creamy. Excellent integration and balance, with a hint of grapefruit pith on the finish.

2. Oachkatzlschwoaf

You should have Urban Chestnut Brewing Company on your radar if you’re looking for a local brewery that understands how to handle Oktoberfest — and consequently, an Oktoberfest beer — the proper way.

The Oachkatzlschwoaf Oktoberfest Lager fits the bill as the greatest Oktoberfest beer available because the brewery is an official sponsor of St. Louis’ version of Oktoberfest. It might be the closest thing to tasting authentic Bavarian beer because it is brewed to stringent standards.

3. Hofbrau

Oktoberfestbier is a real festbier and has a 6.3% ABV, making it slightly stronger than its conventional competitors. Even so, this beer is comfortably drinkable. Due to the use of Munich malts and light barley, Hofbrau’s rendition pours a brilliant gold and has a delicate flavor.

The mildly sweet finish makes you eager to take another sip right away. You should drink this beer with some of the customary roast chicken from Oktoberfest.

4. Endgrain Märzen

Endgrain was created to usher in the fall and is a canning of this season’s essence. This is the reason we adore it so much. The scent actually struck us as being very juicy, being rich and malty with a trace of that Noble hop flavour.

First-sip discovery of richness and depth made us fall in love with the märzen style.

With each sip of Endgrain, layers are peeled back. First comes a taste of dark toast with jam, then comes a finish of almost smoked meat.

5. Nacht-Toberfest

Nacht-ombre Toberfest’s garnet to dark teak wood appearance astounded us. We instantly noticed a strong maltiness and charred wood on the nose, which was followed by a very well-balanced maltiness in the mouth. Serenade, Blue, and Midnight, a dark roasted malt from Troubador Maltings, are probably to blame for that.

6. Rosenstadt Festbier

This is a robust, semisweet Oktoberfest lager with a big body and a little hop flavor. It’s a robust lager that goes well with grilled sausages or lightly fried potatoes and will satisfy both your stomach and your soul.

7. Spaten Oktoberfest Ur-Märzen

This beer, which was made by one of the first German brewers authorized to create an Oktoberfest, pours a light orange golden color with a thin foam that evaporates fast. crisp malt, delicate wheat, a dusting of allspice, and a faint fruity nuttiness, akin to cherry pits, are the aromas and flavors present. Light in body, with a brief finish that is incredibly crisp and clean and touched with delightful green aromas.

Oktoberfest Beers

As you can see, there are a variety of great Oktoberfest beers to try this year. Whether you’re looking for a traditional beer or something with a little more flavor, there’s sure to be an option that suits your tastes. So raise a glass and enjoy some of the best Oktoberfest beers around!
