COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This year’s version of Deschutes Brewery’s Oktoberfest utilizes German Pilsner and Munich malts, as well as German Perle and Hallertau hops. This year, we tried a very traditional method of acidification in our brew kettle. We used a sour wort strain we received from the Distelhauser Brewery in Tauberbischofsheim, Germany. Say that after a couple of pints…we grew this mixture or organisms in 4 gallons of our unhopped Mirror Pond wort and added it directly to our brew kettle for a refreshing, zippy finish on this beer. IBU’s 58

On tap at the Portland pub. Pours a soft copper with a mild off-white head. Very fruity oktoberfest, didn’t quite have the depth of malt that I like. I tend to go for the more toasted malt varieties. Very drinkable with a long fruity malt finish and good balance.

Clear dark honey orange. Little to no head. Rich semi-sweet malt forward bread crust and honey flavored Munich and Vienna malts. Rich, sticky and lightly peppery texture... vibrant and fresh, layered well. Clean. Very tasty
