Time to raise your stein and celebrate the change of the season! As the summer days come to an end, Left Hand Brewing Co. releases Oktoberfest Märzen Lager for the late summer through early fall.

Standing out from the pumpkin beer crowd, Left Hand opts for fall tradition with Oktoberfest. But brewing a true to style Märzen Lager is no easy feat. Left Hand begins brewing in the late spring as it takes a full two months for the beer to reach lagered perfection. Moreover, the brewers perform a traditional yet time intensive decoction mash process, a multi-step mash. The laborious method is the key to Oktoberfest’s color and complex flavor. With over 15 years of brewing their Märzen Lager under their belt, Left Hand’s Oktoberfest stands out as an enduring commitment to the style.

Pouring a brilliant copper in color, Oktoberfest entices the imbiber with notes of warm biscuit reminiscent of home and fall tradition. The beer begins with the toasty sweetness of the malt up front while the noble pedigree hops allow for a dry crisp finish at 6.6% ABV. Giving tribute to its German roots, the style’s heritage is referenced in the label art – showcasing the Bavarian lion and blue & white checkered flag.

Left Hand will officially release Oktoberfest for the 2016 season, on Friday, August 26th in their Tasting Room. The fall seasonal will be available across Left Hand’s 37-state distribution for a limited time. Coming Soon: Longmont Oktoberfest returns September 23rd & 24th! Ranked as a “Must Visit Oktoberfest” by DRAFT Magazine, the annual event hosted by Left Hand brings together ten Longmont breweries with local food, the arts, German tradition, and live music featuring The Wailers!
