We’re in the full grips of Oktoberfest beer season, so I thought I’d pass along this information about Marshall Brewing’s Oktoberfest Lager, which this year will be available in six packs for the first time. The beer will also be featured at Tulsa’s Oktoberfest celebration, set for Oct. 20-23. Here’s what the good guys over at Marshall have to say:
Marshall Brewing Company will officially launch Oktoberfest Lager from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday at Fassler Hall, 304 S Elgin Ave., in Tulsa. The launch party will be the exclusive first offering of Oktoberfest Lager on draft and will feature brewmaster Eric Marshall and the Marshall Brewing team.
Oktoberfest Lager is a beautiful, deep copper-colored lager highlighted by a complex malt flavor, elegantly balanced by the bittering of noble German hops. This beer is extremely smooth and highly drinkable.
Oktoberfest Lager will be available in six packs at liquor stores, restaurants, and bars across the state of Oklahoma, in addition to Tulsa’s own 2011 Oktoberfest. The fall seasonal will replace Arrowhead Pale Ale, Marshall’s summer seasonal, on draft at a limited number of locations throughout the state. Oktoberfest Lager was the first of the series of four quarterly seasonal beers that includeArrowhead Pale Ale, Big Jamoke Porter, and Revival Red Ale. However, the 2011 release marks the first time Oktoberfest Lager will be available in six packs.
Stated brewmaster Eric Marshall, “Fall is a special time in Oklahoma and I am proud we can release one of my favorite styles of beer during this time. I have a deep passion for lagers gained from my experiences in Germany. ”
