Oktoberfest Miami 2012: Where To Find Beer, Lederhosen, Schnitzel And Schuhplattler (PHOTOS)

Just like anyone can celebrate St. Patrick's day, there's no need for German lineage to take part in Oktoberfest.

A 16-day celebration that made its away across the pond from Munich, Oktoberfest is a raucous holiday fit with Bavarian beers, sausage, dancing and games. Both German-Americans and those wanting an excuse to party are throwing bashes throughout Miami-Dade and Broward -- join in on the fun!

Fritz & Franz Bierhaus in Coral Gables is throwing a 10-day bash with all the fixings, and the annual Oktoberfest in Oakland Park draws 10,000 celebrants over the two-day festival. Before heading out for hours of German protein and debauchery, don't forget your lederhosen and steins.
