2010: August – October (also available in 12 packs)
Oktoberfest: Oktoberfest is Vienna’s stronger brother. Gabriel Sedlmayr adapted the Vienna style for brewing in Munich. Because refrigeration had not yet been invented, March was traditionally the last month in which lagers were brewed. Sedlmayr’s beer was made in March to last until September and was served in autumn amidst traditional celebrations.
Spicy dishes, pork, pasta and sausage.
Cleveland’s commemoration of Oktoberfest dates back to the mid 1800s when German immigrants celebrated at outdoor beer gardens like Haltnorth’s Garden and Kindvater’s St. Clair Garden.
