Oktoberfest Biers

Bier ist gut.  For those German challenged, it means what it sounds like.  Beer fricken’ rocks.  
It’s the 200th anniversary of the German Tradition of Oktoberfest.  That’s right, in 1810, some beer loving German royalty decided to get hitched and that’s how we ended up with the rich, amber, copper seasonals that are Oktoberfest style beers.  It’s like a really long, international game of telephone that started with a traditional German marriage and horse race and ended up being a bunch of people gathering around to drink beer, roast sausages and wear the most hideous outfits you can think of.
