Oktoberfest

Märzen Style Lager

A Clean, Malty Lager for Fall

ABV: 5.5%

Our Oktoberfest is a traditional Märzen style lager, brewed entirely with German malts and hops. This beer is a brilliant amber with gently sweet flavors of crusty bread, leading to a clean, dry finish punctuated by just a touch of noble hops. Served in the ‘keller’ or ‘Zwickel’ style – unfiltered and completely naturally carbonated – our Oktoberfest is full-on authentic. Oktoberfest is our fall seasonal.
