Stockholm, Sweden's Oktoberfest (Sept. 29-Oct.1 & Oct.6-8)

Beer festivals are well underway in Norway, Denmark, Iceland, and throughout Scandinavia by the end of each September, but it's Stockholm's Beer & Whisky Festival -- also known as Stockholm Oktoberfest -- that's made the cut in this case. Swedes add whiskey to the mix for two consecutive weekends, giving visitors the chance to try libations from nearly 100 exhibitors. Sign up for beer and whiskey "schools," where novices and seasoned drinkers alike get the chance to learn from experts in Level I and II classes. 34,000 attendees took part in the festivities at Congress Center last year, so be sure to reserve your tickets soon.
