History & Style

Beau’s Oktoberfest features a cross-brewery team beer challenge for 2015 – the staff have split into 4 camps, each eager to out-brew each other for the right to Team Beer victory and a place in the 2016 Oktoberfest Mix Pack! Malty, sweet and bready, this fruit-and-spice beer is inspired by “lamb’s wool,” an old Irish tradition of brewing cider-beer hybrids during the fall apple harvest – the use of a German lager yeast makes it perfect for Oktoberfest. “Universal Gravitation” Apfelbier is brought to you by Team Orkin.
