FEATURED BEER OF THE MONTH

SEPTEMBER

  • Saint Arnold Oktoberfest (Oktoberfest): A full bodied, malty, slightly sweet beer celebrating the harvest season.
  • Brooklyn Oktoberfest (Märzen Oktoberfest Lager): When Crown Prince Ludwig of Bavaria wanted to celebrate his wedding engagement in 1810, he did what any good Bavarian prince would – he threw a beer festival. Both the festival and the special beer served there became known as Oktoberfest. Brewed from the finest German malt and hops, Brooklyn Oktoberfest is true to the original style, fullbodied and malty, with a bready aroma and light, brisk hop bitterness.
  • Sierra Nevada Oktoberfest (Oktoberfest): Partnering with Bavaria’s Weihenstephan, the world’s oldest brewery, this American take on the classic German Oktoberfest is spot on with the perfect balance of hops, crispness and malt.
  • Hacker-Pschorr Oktoberfest (Märzen): A wonderful festival beer to drink if you want to know what a true Oktoberfest beer should taste like. Pouring orange gold and full of bready malts, spcies and has a sweetness that carries over from the nose to the flavor.

OCTOBER

  • Dogfish Punkin (Brown Ale): A full-bodied brown ale with smooth hints of pumpkin and brown sugar. We brew our Punkin Ale with pumpkin meat, brown sugar and spices. As the season cools, this is the perfect beer to warm up with.
  • Oak Highlands DfDUB (Dunkelweizen): This German Dunkelweizen (dark wheat) style ale has heavy banana and clove aromas. A dark, slightly cloudy beer with a fresh crisp taste.
  • St. Arnold Pumpkinator (Imperial Stout): Pumpkinator is a black, big, full of spice, and flavorful beer. Originally released in 2009 as Divine Reserve No. 9, it is an imperial pumpkin stout and our answer to how a pumpkin beer ought to taste. It is brewed with a combination of pale two row, caramel and black malts, Cascade and Liberty hops for a background hop flavor, pumpkin for a rich mouthfeel, molasses, brown sugar, spices and dry-spiced to make it feel like you just walked into your mom’s kitchen while she was cooking 37 pumpkin pies. It is the most expensive beer we have brewed.
