In Florida the changing of seasons is decidedly more subtle than in most other places.  Palm fronds rarely turn brilliant red and orange the way leaves do in the rest of the country, and for Floridians sweaters exist only as rumor.  We at Cigar City rely heavily on our seasonal beers to mark the passing of each month and few beers are better at heralding the arrival of autumn than our Oktoberfest Lager.

Our Festbier nods firmly toward the style’s history with it’s amber color, bready malt complexity and restrained hop flavor and bitterness. At the heart of this beer is a malt bill of six different German malt varieties, including a generous helping of Munich malt.  After adding Hallertauer Mittlefruh hops we ferment the beer with an authentic Bavarian lager yeast, resulting in a clean, dry and complex lager that’s at once intriguing and drinkable.

As the temperature drops to the frosty mid-80’s and the snowbirds return to their cool-weather roosts, we can’t think of a better beer than Cigar City Oktoberfest to compliment the onset of autumn.  Pour yourself a liter stein and let out a hearty prost!
