It’s the most beertiful time of the year.

Ah, the smell of beer and sausage are in the air — it’s Oktoberfest! The time of year everyone who’s studied abroad in Germany posts throwback pictures on Instagram of the good ole’ days, celebrating in Munich. We get it, Becky, you went to Germany your junior year. There are plenty of Oktoberfest events happening around the Boston area. Cheers to the beer, huge pretzels, steins and, of course, beer. Did I mention beer? 

Here is where you can enjoy a lager, eat Instagram worthy food and wear your lederhosen with pride.
