Fall is a time of year where everything changes. Leaves turn into different colors, the weather gets a bit cooler and, best of all, ales change from summer to autumn. The greatest thing about this season is Oktoberfest. This is an annual event where people gather and eat and drink ales from all over. They are usually heavier brews as that is why they were produced. But don’t worry if you miss out on the chance to attend one because brewers are making them for personal use as well.
Here are the top five Oktoberfest brews that are the best sellers around fall time:
#1: Sam Adam’s Octoberfest
This beer is the best one you can buy as its dark appearance and smooth taste will get you to want more. Brewed in Boston, this ale has won many awards at these festivals. It has become known as the beer of the fall. You can purchase this ale anywhere that sells brews.
#2: Dogfish Head Punkin Ale
You will think that you just ate an entire pumpkin pie after drinking one of these. It has such a rich taste that blends nutmeg and other fall spices together. This is definitely a desert brew as it is very heavy. The taste alone should get you motivated for the holidays. It is a drink that goes well with chilly weather and a warm fire.
#3: Beck’s Oktoberfest
Beck’s has been traditionally brewing ales for years, but recently came out with a new fall brew that has become one of the top beers for Oktoberfest. It has a smooth light taste to it, just as its original counterpart but with just a slight edge where it can be deemed a fall brew.
#4: Coney Island Freaktoberfest
This is one of the top sellers for autumn. Its label alone should want to make you buy it. And its name is one that makes this craft beer so unique. It combines caramel and toffee flavors, which gives it the rich taste that made it famous. Be sure and try this ale for the fall season.
#5: Bob’s 47 Oktoberfest
This is a strange ale that many consumers are not aware of. It is a microbrew that has recently hit the market. It is light, but carries a very heavy taste. The caramel flavoring colors this brew with a fall look and gives it a bitter taste.
