Germany is well know for its beerfests and beer brewing skills. And the Oktoberfest without a beer wouldn’t be the same as it is now. You can ban smoking inside the tents but you can’t ban the famous Oktoberfest beer.

Only beer which is conform to the German “Rheinheitsgebot” and as well is brewed within the city of Munich can be labeld Oktoberfest beer.

There are six breweries meeting these criteria (a lot other breweries would like to serve beer)
– Augustiner-Bräu
– Hacker-Pschorr-Bräu
– Hofbräu-München
– Löwenbräu
– Paulaner-Bräu
– Spatenbräu

Every of these beers is fantastic. But there are a lot locals who prefer the Augustiner Bräu beer against the others.
Hofbräu is probably one of the most famous because of the Hofbrauhaus which is located in the centre of Munich.

Spaten is also famous in USA.  If you want to know more about Spaten you can visit the website:

Beer prices

Every year starts a big discussion about beer prices. This year it is between 9.20 – 9.50 Euro. So just make it straight and give the waitress 10 Euro.
