Many, many miles away, Oktoberfest, that spirited German folk festival, is in full swing. The celebration of epicurean proportions runs from the middle of September to the beginning of October. Each year, an estimated six million people pack into the city of Munich for nonstop noshing and gulping. Lots and lots of beer gulping.

Though beer is Oktoberfest’s obvious appeal, there’s no need to forget about the corresponding munchies. Think hearty German pub fare to coat your stomach and soak up those hops. What better accompaniment to a cold heady beer than a juicy bratwurst, a salty pretzel, a flaky apple pastry? We’ve compiled our most Oktoberfest-approved recipes for those who want to carouse from home. Prost!
