Description

Samuel Adams OctoberFest

Although today’s German Oktoberfests have become much lighter in color, the original versions were known for their rich malt sweetness and body. Our OctoberFest pays homage to the Bavarian tradition by using generous portions of malt to create a rich smooth flavor with notes of caramel.

In 1810, the Oktoberfest tradition was born when Munich celebrated the Crown Prince’s wedding with a special beer and 16-day party. Our version of this classic style blends hearty malts for a deep, smooth flavor with notes of caramel, creating a brew that’s perfect for the season, or whatever you’re celebrating.

The Boston Brewery is where all of our beers get their start, with the exception of Boston Lager, which was born in our founder Jim Koch’s kitchen.

It is the smallest of our three breweries (the others are in Cincinnati, OH and Lehigh Valley, PA – please note these two breweries are not open for public tours/tastings) but it is the most important. The Boston Brewery is akin to a test kitchen – it’s where we try out new ingredients, and brew specialty beers that are available only in the Boston area or in our Brewery tasting rooms. When you visit us for a tour, you may have the opportunity to try a beer that you’ll never get to try again or maybe one that you’ll be able to pick up in a six-pack a year down the road. We’re constantly innovating and pushing the boundaries of brewing to make sure that from the ingredients to the glass, every pint of Samuel Adams beer is as good (if not better) than the last.
