Great Lakes Brewing Company is one of my personal favorite brewers, and I particularly like their award-winning Oktoberfest offering.  The label makes me think of an outdoor October festival … and isn’t that what Oktoberfest is all about?

    Oktoberfest and Halloween naturally go well together. Just as Christmas and Halloween do (see the movie, Nightmare Before Christmas).

    David, I think Halloween is cool with anything – especially Oktoberfest beer label designs!
