Miss our guide to Oktoberfest in NYC last month? Here are three more picks of where to celebrate.

5 Napkin Burger is cooking up Beef Knockwurst Burgers throughout the month. Served on a pretzel roll, the ground beef is mixed with spices used to make Knockwurst sausages, then grilled and topped with Muenster cheese, black-label bacon and mustard onions. Pair with an on-tap pumpkin beer.

Shake Shack is getting in on the Oktoberfest action with its eighth annual Shacktoberfest, now through Sunday. Pop by for a cheddar brat burger — a burger topped with a griddled cheddar bratwurst, ShackMeister Ale-marinated shallots and ShackSauce — or dig into Polish sausage, curry wurst or Bavarian brats. Wash it all down with a special Shake Shack Bier Stein for $10, while supplies last: You can fill yours with Brooklyn Brewery’s Oktoberfest brew or Shake Shack’s ShackMeister Ale. Even the desserts are festive: German Chocolate Pecan Concretes and Apfelstrudel Shakes.

The West Village’s Philip Marie has just launched Pig in a Box Wednesdays. Executive chef John Greco marinates a whole pig in stout for two days, then slow-roasts it over organic charcoal in the restaurant’s outdoor cafe in view of patrons. Once finished, it’s served with a stout sauce showcasing hot and sweet peppers. 569 Hudson St., 212-242-6200
