(New Glarus, WI) – Preparation for the changing season begins. Fall cleaning, leaves changing, and of course, Octoberfest. Whether you plan to ring in the fall or celebrate the end of a hard summer’s work, New Glarus Brewing Company is proud to offer their Octoberfest to herald the change in season.
True to style, New Glarus Brewing Company’s ‘Staghorn Octoberfest’ is brewed using the time honored methods and an extra slow lager to release the smooth flavor of roasted malts. You will find absolutely no additives, preservatives, or artificial agents of any kind in this bier, and over 1,100 lbs. of malted barley in every handcrafted batch. 100% natural, great Midwest barleys, the world’s most expensive hops, fresh yeast from Germany, and clear Wisconsin water make Staghorn an authentic Octoberfest. Expect this bier to pour with a rich head of foam that will enhance its incredible spice bouquet. ‘Staghorn Octoberfest’ combines a smooth amber body with a clean crisp finish. Be sure to hold this one up to the light of the harvest moon and enjoy.
The first Octoberfest beer was brewed to celebrate the marriage of King Ludwig of Bavaria during the last two weeks of September. The Village of New Glarus honors this traditional celebration with their own Octoberfest September 24 and 25th. New Glarus Brewing Company will kick off this spirited event by tapping a wooden keg Friday night in Downtown New Glarus. Everyone is invited to join in the festivities. The merriment will continue with live music at the brewery Saturday. The Jimmys (a Grammy nominated Blues and R & B band) will play at the Hilltop brewery, with plenty of Octoberfest to toast good friends, music and memories in the making. We hope to see you there!
