Sitting on the patio as August fades away enjoying my first of the season Octoberfest. New Glarus Staghorn. Sound off if 2020 has any new participants that are worthy... or any old favorites worth mentioning.

Never been disappointed with Beaver Island's Oktoberfest. (St Cloud) Found a sixer last week and it's quite enjoyable.

I had a crowler of Westenburger Anno 1050 in the fridge. We had it last night and my wife and I both like it, For the time being, we like that German taste.

We have a German biergarten in a nearby town and a pub with a large German and Belgian selection in our little town,

I have drifted away from beer over the past couple of years in favor of other libations, but I still enjoy the occasional Amber beer (I have a few favorites that I keep in the fridge). To me, Octoberfest beers fall into the same general category. If they're smooth and flavorful - not bitter - I generally will enjoy them.

For my tastes, the Sam Adams Octoberfest has always been the standard bearer when it comes to Octoberfest beers. I had one the other day and I thought the same thing then that I have every other time I've had one - it's pretty damn good.

Well Schell's Brewery had an Octoberfest out the fall that was satisfactory. Schell's puts a consistent standard product.

I have on hand some Bald Man Brewing Company Rocktoberfest Marzen Lager....I think I've only had one so far so the jury is still out on that one.......but I'm sure I'll like it enough.....just don't see it sold in my neighborhood....I picked it up at place I only go to once or twice a year for the Irish Whiskey selection.

Lots of interesting options out there in the beer world these days...

Ayinger Oktoberfest. Something I haven't been able to find in my area. But when I do!

My pallet prefers Paulaner Oktoberfest bier. A true and traditional German beer, such as Ayinger. Give it a shot.
