The first “Oktoberfest” happened in Munich, Germany in October 1810. This lively celebration was created to celebrate the marriage of Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen by her father King Ludwig I.
Our Oktoberfest is brewed with Munich and Pilsner malts and Nobel German hops. It is smooth, clean and rather rich with a depth of malt character.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2013 The 2012 version is better than previous attempts. Nice ruby color and aroma, but the brew is far too bitter to be an Oktoberfestbier. Cut (way) back on the hops and you might have a great beer here.

Pick up growler from Just Local Foods in Eau Claire, WI. Pours a clear copper orange colored brew with a fast dissipating off-white head that dissipates clean with no ring. Aroma of caramel malt, a hint of roasted nuts, toffee and a touch of cinnamon. Taste is medium bodied, some smoked and toasted caramel malt, minimal floral hops and a touch of toffee. Finish has a toasted caramel aftertaste, a hint of sweet malt secondary flavors that quickly disappears. A tad more toasted malt compared to most other märzens but still festive for the season.
