Sam Adams Octoberfest

Within its first year of production, Samuel Adams' beer was being distributed to Germany, so it's no surprise the notable brewery has since expanded to host its own Oktoberfest. The fifth-annual Sam Adams Octoberfest packs 16 days of merrymaking into one weekend. High-voltage polka group Terry Cavanagh and the Alpine Express and the '80s cover band Mad World Orchestra provide the event's soundtrack. Of course, Bavarian cuisine and seasonal brews are the focus of the fall festival, but they aren't its only authentic elements. The weekend also includes a Miss Octoberfest contest, whose winner is awarded a crown of artfully woven pretzels.
