Ah, Sam Adams, an iconic American name, if controversial. Are they craft, aren’t they craft? Once you taste their 2018 Oktoberfest, you’ll realize it really doesn’t matter because they can brew a consistently complex beer.
If you think there’s only one staple in beer connoisseur’s Oktoberfest stash, think again. Hofbrauhaus is the world-famous Bavarian brew that whets almost anyone’s appetite for a boot full of the liquid gold.
For the first interview of our Oktoberfest, we’re going deep with Erdinger Weissbrau. With 130 years of brewing under their belts, Erdinger is pretty much the staple German brew you’ll find at most pubs and in most pints at beer halls, like Hollerbach’s Willow Tree Café pictured below.
As summer turns to autumn (well, a less hot version of summer that we call autumn), preferences go from pilsners and weissbier to something a little bolder... a little more German. Oktoberfest officially starts today and we’re polishing our beer steins faster than you can saw Bratwurst.
