It has always been a part of Bavarian custom to celebrate in style - with family or friends over a good meal in a cosy and convivial atmosphere. To suit this kind of occasion, Hofbräu München offers a stylish and genuinely festive beer - Hofbräu Festbier. With an alcoholic content of around 6% volume, and its noble, aromatic flavour, it’s an ideal companion for special occasions.

Very nice fest-style beer. The style lists this a dortmunder/helles, but it’s probably more accurate to list it as a marzen. The flavors are definitely on the malt side, with a nice balancing of hops. This is a fairly classic version of the style, but maybe just a little light in the body.
