Crisp, clean and balanced. This beer is brewed for celebrations!
Inspired by Oktoberfest celebrations in Munich, Eppig Festbier is a traditional German lager brewed to mimic the weisn style (not to be confused with “weisse”, meaning wheat or white). Weisn means “the meadow” which references the festival grounds where Oktoberfest is held in Munich each year, and is local Bavarian slang for the beer style.
The refreshing lager, which is more complex in aroma and flavor than a standard Pilsner, utilizes a blend of Vienna, Munich, and pilsner malts from Germany with the addition of noble hops. The result is a golden-hued beer with light malt body and balanced, mild bitterness that finishes exceedingly clean and crisp. Festbier stands up to cold weather but is still refreshing when it’s sunny out.
