Why is Oktoberfest in September? The answer goes back to 1810 during the dark days of beer drinking before the modern miracle of refridgeration. In those days in Germany, beer would never be brewed in the summer months. The batches would never turn out good. The last batches were usually made in March. These last batches would have higher alcohol content to take advantage of alcohol as a preservative.
