The original German Oktoberfest begins September 22 in Munich, but you can celebrate right here at home with our selection of festive beers paired with delicious European cheeses.
Hard and Extra Rich Gouda
This robust, hard cheese, aged 26 months from Holland, harbors notes of whiskey, toasted pecans and deep caramel notes. Pair this with a cold, dark lager like Shiner Bock.
St. Mang Bavarian Made
Soft Ripened Cheese with Garlic & Chives
A double-cream, soft-ripened cheese with fresh garlic and chives. Pair this creamy and smooth cheese with a pale ale like Black Raven Kitty Kat Blues Pale Ale.
Black Raven Kitty Kat Blues Pale Ale
An unassuming pale ale turned stellar with an infusion of dried blueberries, vanilla beans and hibiscus.
Georgetown Brewing Roger’s Pilsner
A refreshing pilsner with a spicy, earthy hop aroma. Accentuated by a Bavarian lager yeast that ferments dry but round and complex.
Brewed with rich, roasted barley malt and German specialty hops, this American-style dark lager goes down easy and can be enjoyed year-round.
Kulshan Brewing Company Premium Lager
A rendition of the classic American lager, this crisp beverage is brewed with U.S. malted barley, German pilsner malt and Yakima Valley hops. Flavorful, but not overwhelming; it is just right.
