So few votes on these. Interesting to learn that few here are fans of Oktoberfest.

Ayinger probably still the most interesting year to year. THE others are SO overproduced for worldwide production. Good American craft versions are a lot maltier, definitely fresher, and much more worthy of your time and money if you enjoy the style

Voted Ayinger, myself. Refreshing and pleasant to drink. Very consistent imho. Also the most readily available near me. I like their Celebrator, too.

Had Dinkelacker, Ayinger, and Hacker-Pschorr at Octoberfest event last night. When I'm just having one and not a stein, my preference is probably Ayinger. Drinking a full stein of Hacker-Pschorr is a great way to start. But when having more than one steain... the Dinkelacker wins.

I love all 3.

The Paulener has become a so so year round beer.
