Firestone Walker Oaktoberfest Oak Aged Lager

Firestone Walker Oaktoberfest Oak Aged Lager...$8.99 / 6pk

A classic amber lager in the Vienna style, which was first served at the Oktoberfest celebration in Munich in 1872. Vienna lagers were so popular that they dominated the festival for decades until they were eventually edged out by lighter colored beers that came into favor in the second half of the 20th century.

Czech Saaz hops are used, which are the classic variety from Bohemia and were dominant in the Vienna style, dating back to when Bohemia was part of the Austrian Empire and provided most of the hops for the region’s breweries.

Our version is dominated by toasty malt flavors and is balanced by a delicate floral and spicy Saaz hop flavor and bitterness.
