This is a list composed of the best German lagers and ales. These are the perfect beers to fill your pints and steins and chug down, waiting and ready for October to roll around.

Germany's 1,200 breweries produce over 5,000 differing brews, and are unmatched in the entire world. How do Germans make their beer taste so good? These beers come with a wider and stronger palette of tastes because they are not pasteurized like American beers are. Generally, tasting tips for German beers instruct you to drink slow, let it fill around your tongue, swish it around and let the nuances of each drink release in your mouth before you swallow. Relish in the aftertaste. Savor the flavor of some of the world's greatest beers!

Which beers go best with your frankfurters? Which beer goes best before your bratwurst? Which beer compliments after dinner specials? Which German beer is good for breakfast? This and much more will need to be discussed by you and your comrades who have traveled Europe and beyond.

Until you are able to get up the courage and the dollars to grab that German pint, let us vote and contribute to the top German beer list of all time. What makes German brews so strong and yet not overpowering? How does one balance a creamy head with light bubbles with a dark and heavy robe? Try some of the greatest beers of Germany listed on the best beers from Germany list and see for yourself. If that's not good enough for you...
