By European law, only those breweries within the city limits of Munich, Germany—
⊲ Augustiner (independently owned)
⊲ Hacker-Pschorr (owned by Heineken)
⊲ Hofbräuhaus (owned by the Bavarian government)
⊲ Löwenbräu (Anheuser-Busch InBev)
⊲ Paulaner (Heineken)
⊲ Spaten (Anheuser-Busch InBev)
— may call their beer Oktoberfest. Thus Ayinger, even though just outside the city limits, must call its beer a Festbier. American breweries typically disregard this European convention.
