In many places, the arrival of fall has everything to do with Bavarian–or German–beer. Countless beer festivals, Oktoberfest being the most prominent and obvious among them, are just around the corner, and as the weather cools off these drinkable styles start calling out from taps and shelves.
Beer has been a crucial part of German culture for centuries, and the styles that have emerged from Bavaria are considered some of the best and oldest in the world. Among them are wheat beers (Hefeweizen being the most popular), pale beers (Kolsch is the most notable here–this is one of the oldest styles of beer in the world), and full-bodied dark beers such as Dopplebock.
