Summer is winding down, and fest beers are arriving. Left Hand Oktoberfest marks the transition into cooler days.
If the brewery is continuing their brewing trend, Left Hand started work on this malty lager this past spring. It takes two months to perfect.
In the past thanks to the pains of brewery expansions, Oktoberfest wasn’t found in every market. Fans will be happy to know it’s in all the brewery’s markets these days. Fest follows this summer’s Good JuJu in the seasonal lineup.
Pouring a brilliant copper in color, the mÃ¤rzen lager entices the imbiber with notes of warm biscuit reminiscent of home and fall tradition. Oktoberfest begins with the toasty sweetness of the malt up front while the noble pedigree hops allow for a dry crisp finish at 6.6% ABV.
Left Hand Oktoberfest is available in 12-ounce bottles and draft, seasonally.
Hops: Magnum and Spalter Select
Malts: Munich and Pilsner
Availability: 12oz bottles, Draft
Fun Fact: Head Brewer Guenzel’s silhouette is blended in the left side of lion’s mane, a signature feature of many of Left Hand’s beer labels.
