For some beer drinkers, what would autumn be without Sam Adams OctoberFest? Sam says they premiered the popular limited release in October 1989, and it's reportedly become the number-one fall seasonal beer in the 32 years since (while the release date has crept up significantly over the years!).

In 2021, OctoberFest is definitely back with its "deep malt complexity, roasty sweetness and light hop character," according to the brand.
