As Oktoberfest celebrations are cancelled across the globe, including ones locally here in the Pacific Northwest, but this sad news ends there as Oktoberfest beers have begun hitting store shelves. Local gypsy brewers Rosenstadt Brewery will hit the local Portland marketplace this week with its Festbier in six-pack, 12oz bottles.

Known as one of the most famous celebrations in the world, Oktoberfest has also become to be known as a beer style. Loosely associated with a traditional Märzen, an Oktoberfest of Festbier is usually a bit lighter in color and less malty. No matter which route a brewer takes, both styles follow the Reinheitsgebot.

Rosenstadt Festbier features layers of malts, with notes of everything from fresh bread and toast to almonds, dried fruit, and golden raisins. Its use of Noble hops provides a floral, spicy counterpoint. Festbier is brewed at 14 Plato, 6.2% ABV, and 28 IBUs and one we highly recommend for fans of this annual late summer beer style.
