Alter Brewing to Release their Fall Seasonal “Festbier”

Share This Article

Alter Brewing Company in suburban Chicago is getting the fest started this August with their fall seasonal lager Festbier. Inspired by the iconic brew served at Oktoberfest celebrations the world over, their version builds on that tradition with a balance leaning toward malt, light toasted character, and a pleasant sweetness on the finish.

“When you hear the word ‘Festbier,’ your taste buds are immediately transported to giant tents packed with people, joyously celebrating the season, and cheersing mugs overflowing with classic German lagers. Well, we wanted to bring a bit of that fest feeling across the pond with our own take on this venerated style,” said Alter’s Marketing Manager Adam Hooczko.
