Prismatic Lager Series Release: Oktoberfest Coming this FallAug 20, 2013 Comments (0)
We've all been enjoying the lighter offerings of our Prismatic Lager Series. Featuring Ninkasi takes on traditional lager styles, Oktoberfest is our second Prismatic Lager Series beer released this year, following Sterling Pils in April. This Dortmund-style beer is the perfect way to wind down after a long day of work or anytime!
Established in 2011 with the release of our Helles Belles, the Prismatic Lager Series was created to highlight our Northwest embellishments of these lager styles.
"We are very excited to bring our Dortmund-style lager into the Prismatic Lager Series as Oktoberfest,” said our founding brewer, Jamie Floyd. “Neither a helles nor pilsner, this style embodies a perfect balance of malt and hops that is neither sweet nor bitter.”
You can find Oktoberfest on shelves in 12-ounce bottles or on-draft this September through October throughout Oregon; Washington; Idaho; Montana; California; and Vancouver, British Columbia.
