Deep gold in color, this beer is luminous in the glass. From the very first sip, the full-bodied flavor is immediately perceptible—a balanced harmony of hop and malt aromas.




Märzen or Märzenbier is a lager that originated in Bavaria and is the beer style that was traditionally served at Oktoberfest in Germany. Kilned malts and specialty malts produce a rich, toasty aroma, with a sweet flavor, while the traditional lager fermentation produces a clean yeast profile.

Goose Island



Goose Oktoberfest is brimming with notes of toasted malt and freshly baked rye bread. This light-bodied German lager is clean and crisp with a fine noble hop character and mild earthy bitterness that is the hallmark of Hallertau hops. Raise a few steins of Goose Oktoberfest this fall and celebrate this time-honored tradition!



A bier for festing is a beer we can all get behind! This version of a classic German-style Oktoberfest pays homage to its roots with smooth German malts and zesty, noble German hops. Light copper in color with a medium-bodied dry finish, this Oktoberfest is tailor-made to toss back, Munich-style.

Bemidji Brewing



Celebrate the changing seasons with this Oktoberfest! Brewed with traditional German malts, hops, and yeast this beer is burnt-orange in color and full of toasty malt goodness. Vienna and Munich malts lend a rich, bread-like character while Hallertau hops bring a bit of herbal spice to this festive lager.

Jack Pine


Jack Pine’s twist on an Oktoberfest-style beer. A medium-bodied beer with a chewy malt mouthfeel. All the bready, toasty, malt smoothness of your favorite fest beer with the soft, well-rounded, character that can only be achieved by the warmer fermentation of an ale yeast.



A true traditional Märzen-style lager, this amber-colored, malty beer is smooth and complex, with subtle sweetness and low bitterness. Flavors including bread, caramel, and freshly baked cookies delight the senses and warm the soul when the temperatures outside start to drop.



Festbier is the beer served at Munich’s Oktoberfest. It is a pale lager with a clear Pilsner malt for a light biscuit sweetness and a golden hue. If you’re out to celebrate Oktoberfest, you’ll enjoy this beer brewed during the dog days of summer!
