The German Oktoberfest celebration held annually in Munich each fall is perhaps the largest and most storied celebration of beer in the world. For those of us who can’t make the pilgrimage to Munich this year, we thought we would offer a flavor of the celebration that can be experienced and enjoyed right here in Japan. Baird Fest Lager is brewed with an all-German grist which features at its core the Vienna malt. The color derived from the malts is a deep amber reminiscent of the fall foliage. The flavor is rich, bready and layered in its malt complexity. The texture is one of velvet silkiness. I can think of no other beverage more conducive to pleasurable imbibing on a crisp autumn day. Prost!
