There's something about fall that cues all the feels. Call me somewhat of a basic betch (I'll take it), but once the leaves start to change colors, this chick over here literally turns into the dancing pumpkin head dude — in her fave flannel shirt and combat boots, of course. With the autumn season comes fall hiking trips with the girls, tailgating, hitting up apple orchards, drinking Pumpkin Spice Lattes, and most importantly, Oktoberfest. While Oktoberfest in Germany is put on pause this year, there are so many other ways to celebrate closer to home. Maybe next year you'll be jetting off to Munich to have the time-of-your-actual-freaking-life, but for now, you'll need to be equipped with some solid Oktoberfest Instagram captions beforehand so you're not attempting to come up with a fire one while you're getting your booze on. Because, let's face it, that never ends well.

Those of us who have been blessed enough to drink steins bigger than our heads in Germany can agree this experience is the real deal. No matter what, you should have a stein in hand at all times if you’re attending an Oktoberfest celebration. It’s even a rite of passage for people to share photos of themself with a stein in hand at their first Oktoberfest celebration. But whether you're sipping in one of the massive beer tents at Oktoberfest, chilling in a bar in your local city, or throwing an Oktoberfest party of your own at your house this year, you'll have a great time ringing in fall no matter where you're at. It's all about the beer, the good company, and the epic Oktoberfest quote or pun that will go along with your adorable IG post. Okay, and maybe the pretzels, sausages, and cheese dip, too.

After you’ve had your fair share on the dance floor, one too many brews, and have had a successful end to Oktoberfest, it’s time to sort through all those pics. Choose your favorite four to five images to post a super cute carousel post to the ‘Gram along with a clever pun. Whether you’re wearing traditional dirndls or a classic flannel shirt, the photos of you and your friends are so worth sharing to your feed. Here are the 43 best Oktoberfest Instagram captions that will bring on all the lit times. *Insert cheers-ing beer emoji!*
