From late September until early October, millions of people flock to Munich, Germany, to celebrate Oktoberfest. And while most people think all Oktoberfest consists of is drinking beer, there's a whole other aspect of Oktoberfest consumption: the incredible food.

Not only do the various beer tents serve full meals, but there are rows of booths serving up everything from fresh-baked pretzels to chocolate-covered fruit, to the traditional Oktoberfest gingerbread cookies. We've put together 31 of our favorite Oktoberfest-inspired recipes so you can get in on the action even without a ticket to Munich -- just be sure to pair all of these recipes with a large German beer.
