Best Oktoberfest Beers

Drinks writer Eric Asimov names his top Oktoberfest beers, and not a single German beer cracks the top three:
  1. Thomas Hooker Octoberfest
  2. Victory Festbier
  3. Flying Dog Dogtoberfest
Only following these come the classics Paulaner and Hacker-Pschorr. Interesting choices, which certainly say something about the state of American craft brewing. For what it's worth, the highest ranking Octoberfest beer on BeerAdvocate with more than 100 reviews is Staghorn, from New Glarus. What's your favorite Oktoberfestbier?
