Spaten Oktoberfest Bier
About the Bier
Fancy a Bier with the Lord Mayor of Munich?
Then order up a Spaten – it’s the brew that kicks off Oktoberfest when Munich’s head-honcho knocks the tap into the Spaten keg & yells, “O’zapft is!” (“It’s tapped!”)
A full-flavoured brew boasting a malty sweetness with hints of fruit and nuts, Spaten was first created in a small Munich ‘brew’ pub way back in 1397. Josef Sedimayr famously introduced the first amber-coloured Oktoberfestbier in the Shottenhamel tent in 1872 – it’s worth noting that the original wort has to be between 13-14%. That calls for a toast to Josef, Gabriel & the Lord Mayor…O’zapft is!
Ask the Bier Professor
Palate full flavoured malty sweetness supported by some nuttiness & fruit character. Perfectly balanced herbal hops finishing with mild bitterness.
