At DC Brau, we love our German lagers just as much as we love our heavily-hopped American ales. We feel it only fitting to offer an Oktoberfestbier to continue the German tradition of celebrating the marriage of Bavarian Crowned Prince Ludwig to Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen in 1810. But let’s be honest, we like any excuse to get together with friends and family to raise a stein of this elegantly balanced, malt-forward amber lager to welcome in the changing of the seasons. Prost!
Oktoberfest includes a variety of malts, including Weyermann Barke Munich, Weyermann Barke Pilsner, Weyermann CaraMunich II, Weyermann CaraMunich III, and Canada Malting Pale Wheat, plus German Tettnang hops.
Available in early September 2018 in 12 oz cans & draft (DC, Maryland & Virginia only)
DC Brau’s Oktoberfest has a classic light amber to copper hue that is topped with intense German malt aromas of toasty bread, light caramel, and faint biscuit. It’s supported by a traditionally light Noble hop aroma that complements the rich malty notes. The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy with a medium body that gives it a pleasing richness. The hops perfectly complement the dominant malt character to form a very refreshing Oktoberfestbier that can be enjoyed all through the fall months.
