In this episode, we select 4 readily available Oktoberfest brews, 3 from Illinois, and see if it’s worth laying out your hard earned dollars for a six pack.
As our baseline, we use a brew that Mark has some interest in – full transparency, it’s his recipe – Church Street’s Itascafest Marzen. As the Landlord isn’t a fan of these styles, we’ll let him define if he likes it or not.
Our other selections are:
Revolution Brewing, German-style Oktoberfest, ABV 5.7%, IBU 25
Big Muddy Brewing, Oktoberfest, ABV 5.5%
Victory Brewing, Festbier, ABV 5.6%
Central Waters Brewing, Octoberfest Lager, 4.8% ABV
This is just our view…here’s another where they taste 55 varieties, Church Street not included – Paste Magazine.
You be the judge, and drink what you like! Cheers!
