The Dominion Brewing Company (Dover, DE) will be releasing Octoberfest at the beginning of August this year to meet consumer demand.
One of the Dominion’s seasonal offerings, Octoberfest is modeled after a traditional German Maerzen. This amber colored lager contains three hop varieties, Tradition, Saaz, and Hallertau, and eight malts, including Vienna, Munich, Caramunich, Wheat, Dark Crystal, Carafoam and Chocolate. It is 6.0% ABV and 20 IBUs.
Casey Hollingsworth, Dominion Vice President of Sales and Marketing, stated, “Dominion Octoberfest is that beer that people seem to look forward to every year. It’s truly a tradition at the brewery and craft beer drinkers have really come to respect our interpretation of the style. It’s also a transitional time for beer as people begin moving from lighter style wheat beers and Pilsners to more full-bodied and flavorful offerings.”
Dominion Octoberfest is a GABF Gold Medal Winner and took the Gold Medal at last year’s Cap City Oktoberfest event in Shirlington, VA. It will be available in six-packs and on draft.
