Since February of 2016, the Lorelei Brewing Co. has been brewing some of the tastiest beers around. At any given moment, the brewery has roughly 6-8 beers on tap – plus what’s migratory.
This fall, they’ve added an Oktoberfest to their menu. This lager (which means “storage” in German) has two renditions, the Oktoberfest and the Dirndl Dropper. Although they taste quite different, there is one small difference – the carbonation. In their back brewery, all shine with silver kettles and magical mixers, the beer, on its last stage right before it enters the keg, gets carbonated with either CO2 or Nitrogen. The change in gas changes the taste entirely. CO2 gives the beer more bite, whereas Nitrogen makes it a bit creamier. Many tasters are shocked to realize they’ve tasted the same beer, simply carbonated differently.
From grain to grass, this Oktoberfest batch takes roughly 35 days. Also, try their Blonde, which is their top seller, and their Double IPA, the second best seller and the strongest! You might not make it to Germany this October, but you can get a taste of Octoberfest here in our own backyard.
