The Prost with the Most

Can a non-traditional craft brewery make a traditional Oktoberfest? That was the challenge Surly faced as we contemplated the kind of beer enjoyed for literal centuries, from Munich to Minnesota. As it turns out, the answer is “Hölle ja.”

Surly Oktoberfest is rich, sweet, and malty up front, bookended by a clean, dry finish with an ever-so-slight touch of hops. We brewed it as a special treat for attendees at our Destination Brewery’s 2018 SurlyFest, and it sold faster than you can say “Prost.” This year, it makes its way into market across our distribution footprint, both on draft and in 12-packs. It’s available to all Surly markets.

Oktoberfest checks in at 6.0% ABV and is the ultimate party beer for the ultimate beer party. Sometimes, embracing tradition makes a hell of a lot of sense.

But we’re still not sold on accordions.

The fine print:

  • Malt bill: Pilsner, Munich, Vienna, Carafoam, Acidulated
  • Hops: Spalt Select
  • Bitterness: Low
  • Pour: Yellow-Orange

ALSO: Save the Date–Surly Oktoberfest 2019 is coming your way Saturday, October 12th, at the Destination Brewery. Details to come!
