Festbier != <> /= Bockbier! That's the beauty of it: Witzgall, Meister, Penning-Zeissler, Grasser, and quite a few other not-located-within-the-city-of-Bamberg brewers make a Weihnachtsfestbier, some in addition to, some instead of a Bock. Think of a slightly stronger Märzen, around 5.3 - 5.8% or so and malty. Or, obviously, Annafestbier. These are all far, far better than the undrinkably bland alochol delivery vehicles known to the world as "Münchner Oktoberfestbier". (And not so strong.)
