Who’s Ready for the Fall Seasonals?!
Bring on the Oktoberfest and Pumpkin Ales!
As craft brew lovers, fall is one of our favorite times of year. Beginning in late August/early September, brewers begin rolling out their seasonal Oktoberfest and Pumpkin Ales – some of the most popular and delicious brews of the year! That’s why we’re starting a new Fall Brew column highlighting the best beers and events of the fall right here on Pint Jockeys!
Today, we’ll kick things off with one great beer and two can’t miss events. First up is Widmer Brother’s fall seasonal – OKTO Festival Ale. Straight out of Portland,Oregon, this full-bodied brew is inspired by Bavarian Oktoberfest. Characterized by distinctive malt flavors, mild character and a clean finish, we think this brew does the annual German holiday justice!
While many Americans won’t celebrate Oktoberfest until next month, the festivities in Munich actually begin this Saturday, September 17 and run through October 3. However, the Pint Jockeys are getting started even earlier with two great tasting events happening TOMORROW, September 15! Come out and try Widmer along with a lineup of other great seasonal ales, and then report back on your favorites. See below for all of the details!
