You can’t get much more Oktoberfest than this: Although the brewery is located outside of Munich (and therefore isn’t the official sanctioned beer of the German fest), it's close enough. The oldest brewery recognized, Weihenstephaner was licensed to brew in 1040 but was making beer even as far back as the year 768. What to expect from the Festbier? A traditional Bavarian brew. It has a toasted malt backbone, notes Draft magazine, but also has that crisp lager finish everyone loves.
