Brew up some serious flavor with our Oktoberfest-inspired Beer Can Chicken. Oktoberfest is more than just a festival, it's a seasonal beer style that signals the start of fall. Traditionally a copper-colored lager, Oktoberfest beers have a toasty, malty sweetness that adds amazing flavors and moistness to your traditional roasted chicken.
