There are plenty of Oktoberfests taking place around Boston and the region this fall, but one in particular just received national recognition for its authenticity.

USA Today just named Trapp Family Lodge and von Trapp Brewing Oktoberfest in Stowe, Vermont among “10 authentic Oktoberfests in the U.S. you should know about.” The festival, which takes place Sept. 21, was the only New England Oktoberfest on the list.

“Have you ever wondered what happened to the von Trapp family after they left Austria?” wrote USA Today. “The family, who are the subjects of the famous musical and movie, The Sound of Music, went to Stowe, Vermont where descendants still run a farmstead, lodge and brewery. For the 10th year in a row, the Trapp Family Lodge is hosting an Oktoberfest celebration, complete with Austrian-inspired beer and food.”
