Oktoberfest, More Like Craftoberfest
Forget about Christmas in July. We’re alllll about Oktoberfest in July. That’s because Festbiers and Märzens are in the tanks at breweries like Aeronaut, Banded, Queen City, Singlecut and a bunch more, so if you want “in” on our Oktoberfest lineup come September, now is the time to let us know. Accounts: keep scrolling for beer specs and our pre-order form. Enthusiasts: keep your 👀 out for these Oktos in-store and at your local watering hole starting in late August. And start prepping your fall flannel.
Oktoberfest Beer Lineup + Availability
We’re pumped to bring you a range of fresh Oktoberfest beers to be enjoyed all season long. 🍂🍂🍂 They’re brewed close to home (like, really close) vs. moseying across the Atlantic on a hot cargo ship. Don’t get us wrong: we’ve got nothing but love for the OG Oktoberfests, but we think freshness and refrigeration matter for lagers, too. Here’s what we’ll be delivering. 👇 Note: availability differs between MA + RI.
Available in MA + RI:
Kent Falls | Wooded Streams | A 4.7% ABV Vienna inspired lager that is brewed almost entirely with Vienna style malt grown and produced in Connecticut. Compared to traditionally produced Vienna style malts, KF’s grains result in a rich copper hue reminiscent of late season leaves across our surrounding hills, with a more bread crust, date and fig character like a Märzen arriving just in time for Oktoberfest.
SingleCut | Inexplicably Used Umlaut | This fall classic gets SC’s full effort with true lagering – cold conditioned for three months as per German tradition in horizontal lagering tanks, resulting in an evolved and beautifully elegant fusion of toffee malt, clean finish and flawless hop balance. A 6% ABV Festbier.
Available in MA Only:
Available in RI Only:
What now? Tell us what you want/need by completing our Oktoberfest Pre-Order Form. Select the brands, formats and quantities that best suit your needs, and please note that many of these beers are available in limited quantities. We ask that you submit your order no later than Friday, August 2. (Almost a full week to make your selections!) 👈 Please refer to our Oktoberfest email for anticipated delivery dates. Quantities permitting, we will automatically add your pre-ordered items to your following delivery.
Attention on-premise customers: If you order kegs from five or more of the breweries on our Oktoberfest list, we’ll throw you a party. 🎉 Seriously. We’ll call it “Craftoberfest.” We’re thinking German steins 🍺, blue and white pennants, custom coasters, a hand-created German playlist, Alpine hats, koozies and our full marketing support. You get the idea. Place your order, then talk to your rep about dates.
