What better what to celebrate October baseball with Oktoberfest?
The Shafly Oktoberfest, brewed in St. Louis, is a traditional Bavarian Märzen with a toasty malt aroma and slight caramel taste. This amber lager is balanced by the use of German noble hops, and combines lager yeast to ferment cold and slow, creating a smooth, crisp beer.
According to Shafly’s website, Oktoberfest, has its origins in Bavaria, most likely before the 16th century. For public safety and brewing quality concerns, the Bavarian Brauordnung was decreed in 1539, stating that beer could only be brewed from September 29th (Saint Michael) to April 23rd (Saint George). Over the summer months, beers were stored, or lagered, in caves and stone cellars. The evolution of Oktoberfest came from the last brews of the year, in March (or Märzen), as these beers would be ready to drink for the Bavarian celebration, “Oktoberfest”.
Even better, Llywelyn’s Pub is commemorating National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. All month long you can stop in and by donating $1 get a Pink Llywelyn’s Pub cup. Great beer, awesome cause. Another reason we love it here!
