Lagers for your Lederhosen

Sep 07, 2023

Oktoberfest officially kicks off at noon (Munich time) the second to last Saturday of each September, which means that if you really want to play by the rules you'll need to wait to lift your stein until September 16 this year. We're not sticklers though, and meine gute (translation = my gosh), we have plenty of fantastic German style lagers in-house right now to kick off your Märzen celebration just a tiny bit early (see our NEW-NEW section at the bottom for a full listing). Staff tasted and approved, here are several we recommend trying...

WISEACRE OKTOBERFEST (6.0%) - malt forward and easy-drinking with notes of toasty bread and subtle sweetness. $11.99 / 12oz 6-pack

TOPPLING GOLIATH OKTOBERFEST (6.9%) - Goliath's take on the style leans a little more into the hop side, with a crisp, snappy kick on the end of the more simple malt bill. $13.99 / 12oz 6-pack

SIERRA NEVADA OKTOBERFEST (6.0%) - Sierra partners with a different German brewery for their Oktoberfest release every year. This vintage was brewed with Kehrwieder and it's as smooth as the style comes. $11.99 / 12oz 6-pack and ON TAP @ Krog & Boxcar

BOLD MONK FESTBIER (6.5%) - GA LOCAL! We're big fans of Bold Monk at Hop City and their recent release of Festbier doesn't disappoint with it's super-drinkable representation of the season.

WILD LEAP OKTOBERFEST (6.3%) - GA LOCAL! Amber colored and hopped with Herkules and Perle. Well-balanced and tasty! $11.99 / 12oz 6-pack

MONDAY NIGHT OKTOBERFEST (5.0%) - GA LOCAL! Crushable at 5% ABV, this MNB seasonal has notes of toasted Bavarian pretzel and just the right hint of hop bitterness. $11.99 / 12oz 6-pack

ELSEWHERE WALK THE LINE (5.4%) - GA LOCAL! Inspired by the upcoming construction of the Southside Beltline and brewed in collaboration with Muchacho, Lady Bird & yours truly, Hop City! $14.99 / 16oz 4-pack

In all, we have 20+ different Oktoberfest beers on the shelves currently. Yikes! Make it easy on yourself and pickup a Märzen Mixpack for $12.99 which includes a 12oz can of each of the first 6 beers mentioned above. Available all month long while supplies last!

Not drinking right now but don't want to miss out on the seasonal fun? Not a problem! We also have some great Oktoberfest beers in package from Athletic Brewing and Untitled Art that are great non-alcoholic options.

And finally, for the freshest of fresh, keep tabs on our draft lists as we'll be featuring rotating Oktoberfest beers at all of our bar locations all season long. Prost!
