This beer is available each autumn in celebration of the great Bavarian festival season. Brewed in late spring and cellared throughout the summer, our Oktoberfest is produced through traditional methods as it has been for centuries in Germany, This copper-hued lager owes its rich malt flavor to a generous combination of select Vienna and Munich malts. Cool, open-fermentation develops a subtle elegance and drinkability suited to any festive occasion.

Pours a dark copper with a small off white top. Aroma is light biscuit malts and light pine hop. Taste is a nice balance of light biscuit malts with a small hop presence.

Pours dark coppery-amber with a thick off white head. Aroma is bright yeasty "Oktoberfest". Taste is initially sweet and syrupy then the ’french toast’ flavors kick in followed by some gritty malts. This is definitely a sweet one and an ’in your face’ kind of Märzen, but I like it.

Copper pour, little to no head, fruity nutty aroma. Malty sweet flavor, fruit and woodsy undertones with a light body. Overall pleasing to the pallet.
