A traditional Oktoberfest beer, or Märzen, is brewed in the winter and then aged until the following fall festival season. In Germany, strict trademark rules dictate that only beers brewed by the six breweries located within the Munich city limits can use “Oktoberfestbier” on their labels. Other German breweries are allowed to call their Märzens “festbiers” in order to participate in the festivities across the country.
Staying true to style, our Oktoberweste beer was brewed in March and lagered for over six months to give you an easy drinking festbier that's rich in malt flavor.
Munich and Vienna malts give it a full body and biscuity flavour with a hint of sweetness; while the combination of German and Slovenian hops add a subtle fruity and floral note with a distinctly crisp, clean, dry finish.
