About this Article

Local breweries are just starting to tap their versions of Oktoberfest, the traditional fall beer, and they all have different views on what makes the drink great. "All Oktoberfest beers are a lager," said Jori Geanconteri, marketing and events coordinator at The Lucky Monk in South Barrington. "They're clean and crisp, yet you get the fall feeling with it."
