Just arrived from Sam Adams  Octoberfest and Harvest Pumpkin Ale   

bottle

 

 

In 1810, Munich celebrated the wedding of their Crown Prince with a special beer.  After 16 days the party ended, but the tradition continues. Our version of the classic Oktoberfest lager blends 5 roasted malts for a rich, hearty flavor while Bavarian Noble hops add a touch of bitterness.

Although today’s German Oktoberfests have become much lighter in color the original versions were known for their roasty malt sweetness and body.  Our Octoberfest pays homage to the Bavarian tradition by using generous portions of five varieties of malted barley  to create a rich toffee sweetness. To this malty backbone we add the Bavarian Noble hops Tettnang Tettnanger and Hallertau Mittelfrueh.  Given that we tend to be in Bavaria for hop selection each fall, this brew holds a special place in our hearts.

Smooth, rich, & roasty with over 17 lbs. of real pumpkin & warming spices like ginger, cinnamon & nutmeg give this brew a smooth inviting character.  This style, first brewed by American colonists, is hearty & spicy making it perfect for the crisper days of fall.

To brew this fall favorite, we used a significant portion of real pumpkin.  The pumpkin is added to the mash to bring out the true pumpkiny flavor in the final brew.  The pumpkin works with the malts, including our two-row pale malts, Caramel 60, Special B, and a smoked malt, to create body and sweetness with a roasty and nutty character.  Once in the kettle we add classic pumpkin pie spices like clove, cinnamon, ginger, allspice, and nutmeg to enliven the brew and give it the spicy warmth of fall.
