Hoptober 2021: Paulaner – Oktoberfest Bier


Oktoberfest might be cancelled in practice, but in spirit it’s just as celebrated as ever! To kick off this year’s rather unorthodox 2021 Oktoberfest, DJ Jayson and Matt Leff from Rhizome Productions got together to talk about the Paulaner Oktoberfest Bier. The perfect compliment to a chilly afternoon, or around a fire with some friends or family. Ready or not- fall is here, and Paulaner Oktoberfest has officially taken center stage!

Paulaner Oktoberfest Bier

Paulaner Oktoberfest Bier has the appealing ABV of 6%, just enough to get you feeling cozy. But if you wanted another, no one would judge! The beer is brewed in a traditional amber style, resulting in a full body with a rich malt flavor and a balanced hop. Finishing off with dark toffee notes and a subtle underlying fruitiness. The resulting clean and crisp flavor is perfect to pair with soft pretzels! This Oktoberfest beer has been brewed for over 200 years since the celebration of the first original Oktoberfest. As tradition holds however, it is only brewed for Oktoberfest, so get it while you can!
