8 Oktoberfest beers you need to try this fall
1 Free State Octoberfest
The oldest brewery in Kansas captured fall in a bottle — you can almost hear fallen leaves rustling with every sip.
2 Paulaner Oktoberfest Wiesn
Germany’s best-selling Oktoberfest beer uses three types of hops and a nice dose of dark barley for a complex but quaffable brew.

A light, crisp and refreshing lager that finishes with a sharp burst of noble hops

A great combination of breadiness and light floral notes from this KC classic
5 Schlafly Oktoberfest
Simplicity and a kiss of candy sweetness from the oldest and largest independent brewery in St. Louis
6 Hacker-Pschorr Original Oktoberfest
This classic amber Marzen tastes exactly like it was brewed in the spring and pulled from an Alpine cave just in time to be brought out to the festival fairgrounds.
7 Martin City Oktoberfest
A nice hoppy bite and lots of effervescent bubbles from the local stalwart
8 KC Bier Co Fest Bier
Impressive depth of malt character from this traditional, decocted Vienna-style lager
