Now that it's finally October, the holiday season is fast approaching. But before we celebrate Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas and New Year's Eve, we must first observe the most important holiday of all, a time-honored and sacred holiday: Oktoberfest.

While not all of us can make the trek to experience the real deal, we're more than happy to exploit our minimal German heritage from the comfort of our own backyards.
