Oktoberfest

Fall Beers & Oktoberfest           With September around the corner, there is no better time for beer, Especially Oktoberfest styles. They arrive fast and leave quicker! Oktoberfest beer, also known as a Märzen style, was created because summer weather would be too hot to brew beer. So brewers decided to start in March (Märzen). The beer was used during the royal wedding of Prince Ludwig and for the citizens of Munich to enjoy in celebration. The popularity of the beer has grown so much that craft breweries all over America have taken shots at making such a historic beer. Ayinger, Hacker-Pschorr, Paulaner, and Hofbräu are some of the breweries that create authentic Oktoberfest beer. While in the US, Samuel Adam’s Oktoberfest, DuClaw’s Mad Bishop, and Blue Point Oktberfest are popular.
