Overdue Oktoberfest

Hey all a quick shout out since I'm overdue on an update, we just tapped our Oktoberfest tonight (September 22 2010).I'm very happy with the way this beer turned out considering all the issues we had this summer. This pseudo lager was fermented at 55 degrees and lagered for three weeks at near freezing temperatures. Its crisp,clean with a toasted malt backbone and balanced with enough hops not to be cloyingly sweet. It checks in at 5.7% but is extremely quaffable, come on in and tell me what you think yourself.

As you all know we've had some issues here at the brewery this summer, but I'm happy to say things look they are in the clear . We now have full temperature control of all our fermenters and I've already started the exciting process of brewing and filling them up. Right now we've got Oktoberfest batch #2 lagering, Hop E Soul (double rye IPA),Sierra Madre and a Belgian Saison that's pumping in as I type.Upcoming beers include Miami Weiss version 2.0, an undecided upon Stout and bigger beers for the cooler months...stay tuned.
