You can order any Oktoberfest-style beer (Festbiers and Marzens) that we have on tap for us to pour in your Der Nachbar stein, except for certain Spezial Oktoberfest styles which will be excluded from stein fills and will be notated in the shop.

How many of your taps have an Oktoberfest-style beer?
