Revelers will sip on beers in the Märzen-style hailing from Bavaria's oldest breweries like Spaten, Franziskaner, and Hofbräuhaus, as well as the best Oktoberfest, brews from local and regional breweries like Devils Backbone, Great Lakes Brewing, Port City Brewing, and Sam Adams Brewery. Oktoberfest beer flights will be available, and guests will be able to purchase their beers in one liter steins which can be kept as a souvenir. Featured Oktoberfest beers include:
