The printing press. The automobile. All those sausages. The Germans have given us many wonderful things over the years, but we’d put their beers at the top of that list. So consider this Oktoberfest Bavarian Lager a small tribute to our stein-swinging friends. Naturally, we’ve put our own spin on things, creating a Märzen-style lager with body, maltiness and subtle caramel flavor that set it apart. Danke, Deutschland.
Upland Brewing Co. announced today that Oktoberfest will be released in early August on draught and in six packs. It will be available on tap at Upland brewpubs and tasting rooms in late August.
Rich and malty without sacrificing any of the smooth, crisp character that defines true German lagers, Upland Oktoberfest is an authentic representation of a classic style. Dark amber in color, a lightly toasted malt character is complemented with notes of caramel and toffee. A blend of three German hop varieties provides perfect balance and a clean finish to this Autumnal favorite.
