Down the Road Beer Co. Launches Henzelmann’s Festbier

Down The Road Beer Co. is pleased to introduce its 10th distributed beer: Henzelmann’s Festbier (6.5% ABV.) Just in time for the fall, this traditional German-style lager evokes the true spirit of Munich’s Oktoberfest. Pilsner, Munich and Vienna malts combine with crisp, Hallertau hops to create a beautiful golden lager that draws inspiration straight from the taps of Oktoberfest’s legendary beer halls.

This fall seasonal is a stellar example of Down The Road’s commitment to traditional styles. In contrast to the common pumpkins and October ales, Henzelmann’s Festbier is a true-to-form fall lager. Light bodied and crisp, slight breadiness is balanced by subtle Hallertau hops to create a gorgeous brew that is equally at home in an earthenware Maßkrug or one of Down the Road’s signature 16oz cans.

And what is a Henzelmann, you may ask? Henzelmann, or Heinzelmännchen, are a kind of supernatural creature sometimes referred to as kobolds. These helpful little guys frequently make their homes inside village breweries to assist with the brewing of their favorite indulgence – beer! Although they are famously secretive and stealthy, Henzelmann often step up their efforts in preparation for large festivals like Oktoberfest and Carnival in order to ensure there is enough beer for all the revelers. The Henzelmann’s Festbier from Down The Road is a tribute to these supernatural assistant brewers, and an acknowledgement of all the festivals they have made possible over the centuries.

Excited about the latest beer from Down The Road? This year’s Village Fest in Everett is your chance to try the Henzelmann’s Festbier before anyone else! The party starts at 3 p.m. on September 17 and runs until 9 p.m. Rock out with some great bands, including headliner Eve 6, play lawn games, feast from a fleet of tasty food trucks and, of course, drink some great beer from Down The Road! Admission is free, so there’s no reason not to get through the gates and see what Everett, the future home of our Taproom, has to offer! Down the Road will be pouring Henzelmann’s Festbier and several other favorites alongside our neighboring breweries: Night Shift and Bone Up along with Short Path Distillery. All of our leadership, sales and support teams are stepping up to sling suds, so stop by, have a beer and get to know Down The Road!
