What’s with all these Fall beers coming back? The pumpkin ales are popping up everywhere, harvest ales are starting to show up, etc. They’re on schedule but, somehow, it just seems a bit too soon this year. I’m not done with my Summer yet!
Well, it looks like Black Raven Brewing Company (CBM Sponsor) is about to add to my seasonal woes. Set for release this coming Saturday, August 29th Black Raven’s Fall Seasonal Marzen Style Lager, Hochtoberfest, makes it’s return. Since I’m a fan of Marzen Style Lagers, however, I think I can forgive them for reminding me that Seattle Summer is winding down.
Here is a bit more information about this beer from Black Raven Brewing Company:
The Hochtoberfest is Black Raven’s fall seasonal lager. Brewed in the German Marzen style, this clean and balanced lager is the perfect summer into fall treat. This lager is crafted with traditional Czech grown and malted barley for an authentic European malt flavor with a light, toasty undertone. Domestic and European hops provide a balanced, light hop profile.
This limited annual release will be available starting this Saturday in the Black Raven taproom when they open their doors at noon. Come have a pint or two and be sure to bring some growlers to fill.
Drink responsibly and stay safe out there.
