Schlafly Oktoberfest....$9.99 / 6pk bottles
ABV: 5.5% | IBU: 25
Clean and balanced in its amber color, sweetness and toasted malts, Oktoberfest is a classic crowd-pleaser authentic in its execution and evocative of its heritage. This traditional Märzen (“March” in German) originated in 16th-century Bavaria, where it was one of the last beers to be brewed for the season before being lagered in stone caves or cellars during the summer. Given months to ferment, it was then ready for consumption at the Bavarians’ fall celebration—“Oktoberfest.”
ABV: 8.0% | IBU: 16
Hailed as one of the best beers of its kind, it’s the reason why fall is your favorite season. Schlafly’s Special Release Pumpkin Ale is well-balanced from start to finish, with notes of caramel and ginger throughout. Fermented in pounds of fresh pumpkin squash and a brewer’s wort and sugar mix before being filtered through a spiced infusion of cinnamon, clove and nutmeg, it turns out exactly how we intend it to taste: like a slice of pie in a bottle.
