Oktoberfest

STYLE DESCRIPTION:
Clean and balanced in its amber color, sweetness and toasted malts, Oktoberfest is a classic crowd-pleaser authentic in its execution and evocative of its heritage. This traditional Märzen (“March” in German) originated in 16th-century Bavaria, where it was one of the last beers to be brewed for the season before being lagered in stone caves or cellars during the summer. Given months to ferment, it was then ready for consumption at the Bavarians’ fall celebration—“Oktoberfest.”
