I was trying to find a place I could buy some Augustiner Oktoberfest for this fall and I cam across a site called ratebeer.com. Apparently they don’t know much about German beer. They classify Augustiner, which is the oldest brewery in Munich city limits, as a Dortmunder Helles. Which is clearly wrong as first of all it is from Munich. Beer in Germany is very regional and the brewers from Munich and Dortmund would be very offended at such a classification. To make it even worse they call it a “light beer”! Like it’s some kind of Coors lite type! I think they need to do some more research. If you can read German here is a great entry from Wikipedia:
