Oktoberfest season has arrived and for the third year in a row, we are releasing our Bavarian-style festbier, Schwandtoberfest. We have to say, it makes us giddy seeing people clamoring for this beer- one that was born in our backyard years ago. At 5.7% ABV and 27 IBUs, Schwandtoberfest is the perfect marriage between rich, toasty malt and crisp hop bitterness. With a floral hop aroma of tangerine and orange blossom imparted by Mandarina Bavaria hops and a deep amber orange pour, this beer will have you busting out your steins and dusting off your lederhosen.

Like every Bauhaus brew, Schwandtoberfest is an incredibly food-friendly beer that pairs exceptionally well with spicy fair and of course, brats and pretzels.

Schwandtoberfest will be available in 16-oz. tallboy cans across the Twin Cities and on tap at select establishments starting Monday, August 22nd. Beer drinkers can also grab a fresh pint in the taproom and get a glimpse of Gustav, the official Schwandtoberfest mascot. Gustav and the rest of the Bauhaus crew make an appearance in the lastest promotional video, produced by the creative minds between Bauhaus and Urban Mountain.

To cap fest season off properly, Bauhaus will be throwing the Third Annual Schwandtoberfest celebration on Saturday, October 1st. With multiple beer tents and food vendors, a handful of stellar musical acts and a bevy of special casked beers, it promises to be the most outrageous stein-hoisting day of eating, drinking, singing and dancing yet. Tickets include entry to the fest as well as a commemorative stein and three beer fills, and can be purchased here.
