Fest With The Best

To say that we’re ready for Oktoberfest at Surly is an understatement.

For starters, there really wasn’t an Oktoberfest in 2020. There was plenty of great beer, but the parties didn’t really happen. And the ones that did were just 17 socially distanced guys in lederhosen standing around card tables in a repurposed parking lot. Good times, good times.

While things are decidedly not back to full-on normal now, they’re better. It’s time to celebrate (to your comfort level, of course) with the ultimate German-engineered party beer. Surly Oktoberfest is back, and it’s time to fill some steins.

Our Oktoberfest lager is rich, malty, and sweet up front, with a clean, dry finish and just the slightest touch of hops. It makes for an ideal beer if you’re all dirndl’ed up or choosing to prost alone. It’s available to all Surly markets as you read this. Don’t fest without it.

The particulars:

  • Style: Lager
  • ABV: 6%
  • Hops: Spalt Select
  • Malt: Pilsner, Munich, Vienna, Carafoam, Acidulated
  • OG: 15.1 Plato
  • Yeast: German Oktoberfest/Marzen Lager
  • IBU: Low
  • Pour: Yellow-Orange
