Yuengling has always has it’s roots in German brewing, as the Yuengling family came to settle in Pennsylvania from Germany. This month, the brewery celebrates their German heritage by releasing Oktoberfest their first ‘fest’ beer.
Yuengling will be holding an Oktoberfest in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania September 29th – October 2nd (Tickets), but the beer starts shipping soon. Octoberfest is draft only in quarter and half barrels. Yuengling describes their newest beer:
The copper-colored Oktoberfest is described as “a medium-bodied beer with a perfect blend of roasted malts.” In other words, it’ll pair nicely with any wienerschnitzels and bratwursts you might be grilling up this summer and fall.
