Oktoberfest beer as we know it has been a part of classic Bavarian lager repertoire for over 150 years, although the celebration itself dates back to 1816. The familiar rich amber lager we now know by this name originated in Vienna and migrated to Bavaria by the 1850s. Like the classics, our version is deeply malty, with just enough hops to provide a sense of balance. But our version lightens up the body a little to avoid being too sweet, making for a crisper drinking experience. We start with the classic Vienna and Munich malts, and use a few other types as well, for greater complexity as well as an easy drinkability. Slightly more hop bitterness as well as some pleasing hop aroma gives the Berghoff Oktoberfest a bit more punch and personality than the original.

A chestnut colored lager with a malty aroma and subtle toasty sweetness. A pinch of noble hops gives this refreshing beer a clean finish.

This crisp clean dark lager begins with hints of roasted coffee beans and rich chocolate but showcases a surprisingly light body and mouthfeel. This Schwarz bier (German for “Black Beer”) is moderately hopped with Noble German hops that complement the delicate malt backbone. Not to be underestimated this lager is a true champion of flavor!
