||When Crown Prince Ludwig of Bavaria wanted to celebrate his wedding engagement in 1810, he did what any good Bavarian prince would - he threw a beer festival. Both the festival and the special beer served there became known as Oktoberfest. Brewed from the finest German malt and hops, Brooklyn Oktoberfest is true to the original style, fullbodied and malty, with a bready aroma and light, brisk hop bitterness. Technical notes Malts: German Pilsner, Light Munich, Dark Munich, Caram unich, Belgian Aromatic, Melanoidin Hops: Perle, Hallertauer Mittelfrueh Yeast: Our Oktoberfest Lager Yeast Alcohol by Volume: 5.5% Original Gravity: 14.5° Plato. Food pairing Sausages, chicken, steaks, pork chops, cold cuts, burgers, roasted meats, Swiss, Gruyere or Stilton. Producer Like our namesake borough, the Brooklyn Brewery is made up of a rich collection of characters from all over the world. In our Williamsburg home, these characters are dedicated to brewing and selling great beer and enriching the communities we serve. Together, these Brooklyners have assembled the skills needed to transform a home brewing hobby into an independent brewery with a brand that has become an international beacon for good beer.
