Three Weavers Brewing Company announces the return of Festbier, a seasonal Oktoberfest-style lager. Starting this week, the 5% ABV brew will be available in 4-packs of 16 oz. cans for delivery or pickup at Three Weavers’ Inglewood taproom, and at select California beer sellers.
Festbier is inspired by an appreciation of Bavarian culture and its lagers. The classic style, originating in Germany, has become synonymous with yearly Oktoberfest festivals, where merriment is had and great German-style beer is celebrated.
“I love how refined German-style beers can be. They’re simple and approachable, yet require a great amount of brewing skill to pull off well,” said Three Weavers’ Brewmaster Alexandra Nowell. “While a lot of American Oktoberfest-style lagers tend to carry a bit more body and toasted malt character, we brew Festbier to be light and easy on the palate – a nod to the beers served in Munich’s festival tents.”
A combination of soft Pilsner malt, toasty Vienna and rich, biscuit-like Munich malts mingle with clean, floral German Noble Hops, bringing the style to life in a uniquely Three Weavers fashion. Oktoberfest events may be cancelled in 2020, but beer lovers can still enjoy the balanced, richly malted, autumnal flavors of the season with Three Weavers’ Festbier. This beer tastes best when you’re appropriately dressed in a dirndl or the lederhosen of your choice.
Celebrate Oktoberfest season with Festbier, a fresh take on an enduring style. Festbier is a limited release, available at the taproom and select retailers starting in early September.
