A superb balance of malt, hops and yeast character to celebrate Oktoberfest
[Character]Delicate balance of malt, yeast, and hop flavors inspired by the Oktoberfest festival.[Food Pairing]Roasted Ginko Nuts, Smoked Spare Ribs, Seared Tuna with Salt and Yuzu Seasoning [Naming]Our original release of New Frontier was a journey into new territory: lager. From there we now look to branch out into yet more untraveled paths, changing hops, malt, and yeast as we continue the journey to find the perfect lager.[Brewer's Voice]We love beer, and we love enjoying beer with other people who love beer. That is probably why the Oktoberfest celebration in Germany has such a legendary place in our minds--and the minds of all beer lovers for that matter!
While Kyoto is a long way from Bavaria, this beer is our ode to what it would be like to be drinking in the beer tents of this famous festival. This is actually the second time we have made an Oktoberfest beer in the New Frontier series, and it is rewarding to know that beer lovers in Japan appreciate the series and this product.
Not too much was changed since last year's version in an attempt to remain traditional like the festival. The hop choice shifted a bit and the fermentation temperature of the yeast was lowered in an attempt to make the beer even more balanced. We hope this release takes you to Germany!StyleFestbierSeriesNew frontierABV5.5%IBU20Gas Volume2.5MaltPilsner, Vienna, MunichHopHallertau MittlefruhYeastLagerCategoryUnknownJAN4589718741314Best Before2024/01/12
