Prost Brewing Co | Festbier Pale German Lager

Prost Brewing Co | Festbier Pale German Lager

Prost Brewing Co. is a craft brewery out of Denver CO focused on crafting only the finest German-style biers. They honor their German heritage by sourcing only the highest quality ingredients directly from Germany and by following traditional brewing practices and lagering techniques resulting in award winning bier.  In their biergartens you’ll find long, wooden tables where you can sit next to friends and family, or turn strangers into friends over a stein of your favorite brew.  Prost offers a taste of Oktoberfest everyday where drinking from das boots and wearing lederhosen is not only accepted but preferred!

In observance of Oktoberfest starting September 21st in Munich Germany, Prost Brewing Co and Suds Duds Society decided to highlight the Festbier German Lager.  In America, the Oktoberfest style of beer released by most breweries in the fall are traditionally a Marzen.  The Marzen style was actually served at Oktoberfest starting at 1872 until 1990 when Festbier was adopted as the standard festival beer.  So what's the difference between a Festbier and Marzen?

The Marzen style is an amber lager that has notes of bread and toast, low to no hop character ending with a dry finish.  The Festbier is a pale lager with moderate malt character, low to low-medium hop character ending with a dry finish.  In comparison, the Festbier is lighter in color resulting in less toasty flavors allowing the hop bitterness/flavors to poke through. 

The overall impression of a Festbier is a smooth, clean, pale German lager with a moderately strong malty flavor and a light hop character. Deftly balances strength and drinkability, with a palate impression and finish that encourages drinking. Showcases elegant German malt flavors without becoming too heavy or filling. 

Now that your mouth is watering...  Go brew a Festbier and drink like a German!  Prost!
