Hofbräu Oktoberfestbier is an Oktoberfest lager from Hofbräu München Brewery in Munich, Germany. One of the ‘Big Six’ original Munich breweries, only Hofbräu München can lay claim to royal heritage! Founded by Duke Wilhelm V in 1589, they originally only brewed beer for the royal family. However, the royal brewery eventually started selling their beer outside the royal household, and became one of the biggest producers of beer in Germany. Hofbräu Oktoberfestbier is a special 6.3% ABV beer with a golden yellow appearance Aromas of sweet malts with notes of grass, grain and hay rise from the beer, and the first sip reveals a rich, malty flavour with a hoppy dry finish.
One of the original six Munich breweries, Hacker Pschorr’s history dates back to 1417. The original site of the brewery is home to the Altes Hackerhaus restaurant where you can sample the brewery’s wares. Fun fact: Oktoberfest or Marzen style beers are stronger than traditional Munich Helles lagers, because there used to be a ban on brewing during the summer months. The boiling part of the brewing process was deemed a fire hazard, so breweries had to brew enough beer in March (März) to last throughout the summer. For the beers to last into early Autumn, they were made stronger – hence the birth of the style! Hacker Pschorr Oktoberfest Marzen is considered to be one of the best Oktoberfest beers. Pouring a pale amber colour, Hacker Pschorr Oktoberfest Marzen offers up a rich bouquet of malt aromas. The first sip reveals caramel sweetness, balanced by a slight bitterness from the fresh, grassy hops.
Spaten beer is respected throughout the brewing world with their history of brewing dating back to the 14th century. Spaten München beer is one of the six breweries that can officially brew a beer called ‘Oktoberfestbier’, as it’s one of the six original Oktoberfest breweries, based in Munich. Spaten Oktoberfestbier has an alcohol content of 5.9%, stronger than a traditional Munich Helles. Brewed in the spring, it’s slowly crafted throughout the summer so it reaches peak flavour and quality, just in time for Oktoberfest. Pouring a warm copper colour, Spaten Oktoberfestbier offers up aromas of caramel and earthy bread. Caramel and honey mingle on the palate, with fresh, crisp hop notes to balance the initial sweet flavours.
A true classic of quintessential Munich and Bavarian food and drinks. Clear and sparkling bright golden in the glass, crowned by a pure white head, it is usually drunk in the shade of a chestnut tree according to tradition. A beer which always goes down well: mild, elegant malts with a hint of sweetness and a soft hint of hops in the background. This is pure Bavarian life style!
Rothaus Hefe Weizen is a Hefeweizen from German brewery, Rothaus. Founded by Benedictine monks in 1791 in the Black Forest, Rothaus Brewery is now owned by the German state. Rothaus beers have a fantastic reputation and their Hefeweizen is no exception. Rothaus Hefe Weizen pours a hazy golden colour, releasing aromas of banana, cloves, citrus and a hint of bubblegum. The flavour is both sweet and dry, with fruity flavours from the yeast, and a spicy finish.
Paulaner Munich Dunkel is an easy drinking, Dark Munich lager with a malty, chocolaty flavour. Original Münchner Dunkel is actually the “original” Munich beer. Although light beer overtook dark in popularity stakes at the end of the 19th century, the traditional, strong flavor of Original Münchner Dunkel is once again enjoying an upward trend. Its dark golden color and wonderfully full flavor are the results of the traditional bottom-fermented brewing process using dark quality barley malt.
