Okotoberfest Beers Hitting Our Shelves
A sea of Oktoberfest beers are flooding Binnys.
One misconception regarding Oktoberfest beers is that they are actually around in the month of October. While some are still left over during the month they are named for, several of the more popular ones will be long gone come October. The Germans start celebrating Oktoberfest in mid September, and the world's largest fair always ends on the first Sunday in October.
Oktoberfest brews are usually rich and malty with an ABV around 5-6%. Different breweries versions are generally very similar, most following an age old German recipe. Malt characteristics include roasted, toasted, burnt, and caramel. Regarded as light and refreshing, Oktoberfest brews are ideal session beers. Below is a list of available Oktoberfest beers available at Binny's.
