Great Lakes Brewing Oktoberfest

Great-Lakes-Brewing-OktoberfestLike the crazy but lovable relative you only see once a year, our Oktoberfest is a heartwarming reunion in a glass — preferably of the heavy, handled German stein variety. His warm, malty arrival inspires grand celebrations and joyful dancing in the streets. But Oktoberfest is really in his element when paired with a well-worn sweatshirt, a bonfire on a late summer night, and nostalgic stories of holidays past.

Gabriel Sedlmayr adapted the Vienna style for brewing in Munich. Because refrigeration had not yet been invented, March was traditionally the last month in which lagers were brewed. Sedlmayr’s beer was made in March to last until September and was served in autumn amidst traditional celebrations.

From the Brewer – “Prost! Our take on this classic German style is a celebration of maltiness— packed with rustic, autumnal flavors to put a little more oomph into your oom-pah-pah.”

Enjoy with: Spicy dishes, pork, pasta, and sausage.
