Starting tomorrow, the world will get a little bit crazier: It's the beginning of Oktoberfest, that three-week-long celebration of, well, beer! (Why it starts in September, we don't know, but we're happy to start drinking beer and eating pretzels now.) Though you may not be in a raucous tent, German songs ringing in your ears, you can still pour yourself a pint and celebrate. We're revisiting this collection of recipes to get you in the spirit—lederhosen optional.
