Oktoberfest Beers

Only beer conforming to the Reinheitsgebot, and brewed within the city limits of Munich, can be served at the Munich Oktoberfest. 

Beers meeting these criteria are designated Oktoberfest Beer although the name 'Oktoberfest beer'also denotes two distinct beer styles: a traditional Marzen lager and a paler,'Festbier' that is now more commonly served at Oktoberfest itself.

The breweries that can produce Oktoberfest beer under the aforementioned criteria are:

  • Augustiner-Brau
  • Hacker-Pschorr-Brau
  •  Lowenbrau
  •  Paulaner
  •  Spatenbrau
  • Staatliches Hofbrau-Muchen

Oktoberfest Beer is a registered trademark by the Club of Munich Brewers, which consists of the above six breweries.
