Latest Specialty Beer: Oktoberfest

This time of year we like to take a moment to appreciate all the things the Germans have given us – bratwurst, pretzels, Volkswagens, kindergarten, strudels, and (one of our favorites) Oktoberfest! This annual specialty lager is now on tap and ready for a robust “Prost!” with friends at Standing Stone.

About the Bier

Our Marzen-style Oktoberfest is orange-amber in color with a bready aroma. The medium mouthfeel and rich, light-toasted maltiness is followed by minimal bitterness. This versatile beer is great with a wide variety of foods, and delicious on its own. 5.1% abv, 25 IBU

Food Pairings

For a festive feast, pair with your favorite German foods. Schnitzel, sauerkraut, bratwurst and pretzels all make great flavor matches with this malty brew. For a fun twist, we also like to pair its sweetness with spicy Latin foods, like tacos or chilaquiles. This robust beer will taste great with most foods that are grilled or roasted, bringing out caramelized, toasty qualities. Here are a few pairing suggestions from our menu:

bratwurst

Grilled Corned Beef Reuben with Sauerkraut

Greek Salad with Grilled Pork Souvlaki

Steak Tacos with Stout Glaze

Pepperjack Quesadilla with Chorizo

Chilaquiles

You’ll find our seasonal brew on tap at the brewpub, Brews and Boogie at ScienceWorks on Saturday, October 4th, and Pumpkins and Pints on Our Pasture on October 19th. There are so many reasons to toast great craft beer this month – we wish you all a happy Oktoberfest!
