Forbes just put out an article on The Best 15 beers to try this Oktoberfest. We’re honored to make that list with Festbier, our Marzen-Inspired Ale. There are so many great beers from so many outstanding breweries that also made the list and we’re proud to stand alongside Sierra Nevada, Weihenstephaner, Firestone Walker, and our friends over at Jack’s Abby.
Karla from Forbes writes “It’s been fun to watch people start to recognize the beauty of a well-brewed German style. They’re not easy to execute and there’s a reason why many brewers drink pilsner, helles lager, or Oktoberfest in September: The beers are very drinkable, with a depth of flavor.” Festbier’s depth of flavor comes from toasted German malts lending a nutty backbone that’s balanced out by subtle floral hops, all while being light and drinkable.
Festbier is a beer worthy of any celebration, and Forbes seems to think so too. It’s available now in cans and on draft at your favorite place that carries Castle Island, so grab a pint and raise a toast to Festbier season.
