Title pretty much says it all. Starting to get into Octoberfests and just trying to get a starting point for good/great. Thanks!
There's a city called Marzen? Huh. Where abouts? The beer is called Märzen because it was traditionally brewed in March (at least, that was my understanding).JonM said:Argh, I WISH I could remember, but I had one last fall and it came from a brewery that was actually in Marzen. I had it on draft here in the U.S. But didn't think to write down the name. Google is no help. Any HBT'ers know if a good one from Marzen?
I guess so. I just google mapped it an there's something called Marzen-burg just south of Leipzig.MalFet said:There's a city called Marzen? Huh. Where abouts? The beer is called Märzen because it was traditionally brewed in March (at least, that was my understanding).
I have to agree with the Hofbrau. Got a 5 liter keg last year and was rather taken aback. hmmm... Come to think of it, I've had a number of fine Octoberfests this year, but haven't had any Hofbrau; mental note taken...Of the ones I've had this year, I liked Hofbräu's best.
I completely agree with you. I Love the Sam Octoberfest. My biggest issue is I live by if ain't broke don't fix it. Having said that I buy nothing but SA Octoberfest year after year because I real enjoy it. This years batch i've tasted however seems like it is Octoberfest Light.Something is up with the Sam Adams bottles this year. I've had some from a 12 pack, and some from a bar and they all where over carbed and tasted really thin compared to the draft of it I also had.
I agree. I find most of blue point's beers to be fairly meh, but I had one of these last year and I remember it being quite nice.wheels4 said:Your in NY...go get some Blue Point Oktoberfest. You will not be disappointed.
