Oktoberfest

Fall Seasonal

We brew Oktoberfest in tribute to the world’s biggest beer party.

Vienna and Munich malts produce the deep golden color, nutty undertones, and toasted malt flavors characteristic of this renowned Bavarian beer style. Perle hops imported directly from the Hallertau region of Germany give the beer a smooth balanced finish. This celebratory lager puts the ‘fest’ in the month of October.

What started as a community celebration of a royal Bavarian wedding in 1810 has turned into a beer tradition like no other. Over 16 days each fall, some 6 million people head to Munich, don lederhosen and funny hats, gather in enormous tents, and drink oversized steins of beer. We brew this beer true to the original style so you can enjoy some Oktoberfest cheer from the other side of the planet.
