An OKTOBER Ex-BIER-ience
With Oktoberfests being celebrated around the world, mimicking the original in Munich, Germany, also going full force as you read this, we’ve got the ORIGINAL Oktoberfestbier available here in Ontario for a limited time. Did you know that in Munich, the only breweries that are allowed to sell their special seasonal brews for Oktoberfest must be located within the city limits? Not like breweries around the world that have hijacked the term Oktoberfest for whatever style of beer they wish to produce and market. Our Oktoberfestbier is brewed by the famous Hofbrauhaus Munich, the mothership of all beer halls. Bright golden in colour with rich aromas of bread, it is medium-to-full bodied with a long citrus and dried hay accented finish. A classic Märzen style, clocking in at a slightly higher 6.3% alc./vol., the independent Beverage Testing Institute gave it 93 points with an “Exceptional” rating. Pick up some sausages, buns and sauerkraut from your local grocery store, chain or independent, and celebrate your own home-based Oktoberfest.
Don’t forget to get over to your local LCBO and pick up bottles of HOFBRAU OKTOBERFESTBIER 500 MLS 84889, $4.05 to round out the experience
