In honor of Oktoberfest (and our German friends building our new brewery) we give you Scratch #48-2011, Fest Bier. This gorgeous lager features German malts including floor-malted Bohemian Pils, and generous amounts of Vienna and Munich malts which add a nice body and a slightly darker color than a traditional fest beer.

All noble hops provide a hint of grapes and a subdued “German stink.” The Magnum hops add a crisp bitterness and the Tradition hops impart a slight earthy taste.

Ich möchte einen Toast auf BrauKon ausbringen!
