PorchDrinking’s Guide to Celebrating Oktoberfest 2020

Brewdacris Oktoberfest Podcast

As the sunset arrives earlier each day during September, it becomes abundantly clear that autumn is setting in. And, with that seasonal transition comes one the most recognizable fall beer festivals around — Oktoberfest.

While Munich serves as the home of Oktoberfest parties and beer, breweries throw lively celebrations throughout the world and produce a wealth of Märzens, Festbiers, or German Golden Lagers. Yes, things are different this year. But, the beer is here. With our PorchDrinking Oktoberfest guide, we wanted to celebrate the popular fall beer genre by showcasing special beers, providing travel and beer guides, asking brewers advice on how to celebrate at home, answering your questions and more. Prost!
