Oktoberfest and Masskrug Monsoon return today
ACHTUNG! Two of your favorite Oktoberfest-inspired seasonals are making their triumphant return today. Drink like a German with these brews worthy of any beer hall:
🍺 OKTOBERFEST: This lager is designed to mimic the most popular beer style served at the Munich Oktoberfest: Festbier. Though it showcases elegant German malt flavors, it’s still impressively light, with a crisp finish that encourages drinking and stein-clinking.
🍺 MASSKRUG MONSOON: Back for its second year, Masskrug Monsoon is brewed in the style of a Munich Dunkel, the second-most popular beer style served at Oktoberfest. Whereas Festbier is light, Dunkel is dark (in fact, the word dunkel translates to dark) and is packed with bready, toasty malt flavor with hints of coffee and chocolate. A collaboration with Spaten Brewery in Munich, Masskrug Monsoon is named for the Masskrugstemmen—the traditional stein-holding competition held at Oktoberfest each year.
Both beers are available in bottles and on draft at the 8th Street pub now. Six-packs will begin landing in stores throughout Arizona and New Mexico this week. Head to fourpeaks.com/finder to find ’em.
