It seems that we have been ignorant to those festivals that don't have polka bands, beer steins, or bratwurst. Introducing Laurelfest 2010, a celebration of the end of summer, with laughter, food, and the release of Laurelfest Lager.

The fun starts at 3:00 PM PST and runs throughout the night, so what are you waiting for?!

Laurelfest Lager – 5.2% Alcohol by Volume- 20 IBU *circa 2008

Description from Head Brewer Chad Kennedy: “In the great Bavarian tradition, this medium-bodied Oktoberfest beer is

The delicious Laurelfest Lager

made with German malt and hops. A rich amber lager, it features a malty aroma and flavor with noble hop balance. Celebrate the most famous of beer festivals with Laurelwood’s tribute to Oktoberfest.”

This was my favorite of the night. Crisp and smooth enough to  be sessionable, but enough body and subtle flavors coming through to entice the pallatte. Not overly malty, perfect bitterness and just the right kiss of hops came through.

Hop Bale Pale – 6.2% ABV –  56 IBUs – O.G. 14.6 º Plato –source,
