But there’s one item you really can’t be without for our own Oktoberfest fun—and that’s beer, of course!

Traditionally, Oktoberfest is the world’s biggest beer festival, held every autumn in Munich, Germany. But the good cheer has spread all over the world, and we're happy to hop on board the Bavarian bandwagon.

Now that the weather is starting to cool off, I find myself passing on the rosé and the whites wines and the sparkling Cavas, and opting for full-bodied beers instead. They just taste like autumn!

Drink a seasonal brewsky with an oversize pretzel and an oversize bratwurst, and you've got yourself a hearty meal worthy of an Oktoberfest fete.
