5 German Styles to celebrate!

🇩🇪Owltoberfest – German-style Helles – our clean and crushable flagship beer of Oktoberfest weekend. Brimming with notes of fresh bread, tangelo, and yellow peach. A hoot with every sip 🦉

🇩🇪Prost Malone – unfiltered Munich-Style Lager that sings a smooth harmony of malty richness, toasted bread, and subtle, earthy hops. Brewed with rockstar flair and chart-topping flavor 🤘

🇩🇪Kolsch Encounters – German-Style Kolsch that beams down a cosmic blend of crisp, light malts, and otherworldly refreshment. Hints of apple, pear, and a close encounter with deliciously fruity hops 🛸👽

🇩🇪Dunkel John’s Band –  Munich-Style Dunkel that honors a legendary band with its name and label artwork. Smooth and delicious, with notes of rye bread, toasted grain, and zesty hops 🥁🎶

🇩🇪Chill Zwickelson – German-Style Zwickelbier that tees off with a fairway of bready malt flavor, subtle grassy hops, and a hint of citrus. A hole-in-one for your palate 🏌️‍♂️⛳️

You’ll need a vessel for all these Oktoberfest beers! Steins and boots will be available for purchase to enjoy and prost at both Everett and Lovejoy!
