It’s Oktoberfest Time Already?

I know we’re talking about barbecuing on the site today, but others have begun to turn their attention to Oktoberfest, including our pal Bill Covaleski over at the Victory Brewing Company.

Check out this video where Bill does a really nice job of explaining the chronologically challenged nature of Oktoberfest, traditional Marzenbier brewing methods, natural lager yeast selection, food pairings and more, all in a tidy four minutes.

Boy could I go for a Victory Festbier right now.  I guess it’s mission accomplished, huh Bill?

    Mmmm…Festbier. I didn’t notice it on tap when we were there, but they had a lot of specialty items on tap while we were there, perhaps it got crowded out?

      There were so many beers on tap, it would take a few days to work through them all. Not that I’m not willing.

      I had a dream the other night that you and I drove to victory from my house and it was only 20 minutes away (not 3 hours) and we stopped in for pizza and beer. Boy was I disappointed when I woke up without having that gyro pizza!

        That Gyro pizza was amazing, but probably not the best pairing with the festbier. No I’d go Sausage (Rosemary of course) Mushroom and Onion. To me that would be the best with this beer that Bill has. I’m getting hungry now!
