Another Octoberfest beer is now available in central New York...Leinenkugel's Oktoberfest, from the Leinenkugel Brewing Company of Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. I still don't know why some breweries call their fall brew Oktoberfest with a "k" or Octoberfest with a "C". The brewer's with the "k" probably think it looks more German.

I've tried this one myself, and I give it a big thumbs up! Here's a brief description of the beer according to

"The perfect beer for anyone who wants to join in the spirit of arguably the world’s greatest festival. A traditional Märzen-style beer, our Leinenkugel’s® Oktoberfest has a toasted malt flavor and subtle, spicy hop notes that make it perfect for celebrating fall in true German fashion.
