This 16-day event in Bavaria in late September/early October is a hugely sought after event to attend in the autumn time.
In America, we certainly do our own renditions. The best one I ever attended was in Southern California at a little place called The Alpine Village in Torrance.
They had a pretty fun one at Busch Gardens in Virginia, as well.

Harvest ales, Oktoberfest beers, pumpkin ales, hard apple ciders - there is no better time of the year to get your ale on! Keep a lookout in your stores. My personal favorite is Buffalo Bill's Pumpkin Ale - very rich, earthy, real pumpkin tasting - tastes like the month in a bottle.
