Männer and frauen…put on your lederhosen and dirndls because Danktoberfest celebrations have officially begun here at the SüßWasser brewery. This is a biggin’ folks. As our first true lager ever brewed, Danktoberfest is the latest creative brain-child to come from the heady minds of our brewers, debuting from our infamous Dank Tank series…and this one promises to straighten your schnitzel.
The high gravity Oktoberfest-style brew hit our bottling line this morning. Get in on the action and check out the pics below (or by thumbing through our Flickr account).
Danktoberfest promises to deliver a malty taste and bready aroma, packed with zesty hops and huge amounts of heat. Weighing in at a whopping 8.5% ABV, this bad boy is brewed with German malts and hops to include: Pilsner, Munich, Cara Munich, Aromatic, Dark Munich malts; and German Perle and Hallertau Mittelfruh hops.
Be on the lookout for Mr. Dankenschnitzel to hit shelves the first week of October. He’s tall, blonde and bottled in a 22-ouncer. You’ll also have the chance to meet him in person at SweetWater’s Tasting Room on select tour dates. Remember Mr. Dankenschnitzel isn’t a native, so be sure to act fast and save some for your cellar.
