Pull out the Lederhosen, it's time for Oktoberfest! The brewers at Lompoc Brewing are welcoming autumn with a release party for their fall seasonal, Lompoc Oktoberfest. The gathering, which includes a German barbecue, will take place Sept. 11 from Noon to 8 pm in the Lompoc's Fifth Quadrant Brewery and inside the Sidebar tasting room, both located at 3901 N. Williams Ave. Staying true to the theme, the menu will feature a selection of German sausages with a variety of condiments/toppings. There will also be a traditional accordionist playing beer polka tunes from 2 to 5 pm. –source, 5th Quadrant & Lompoc Brewing
Beer Geek Information
Pale orange in color, Lompoc Oktoberfest is a Marzen Lager featuring a clean malt flavor artfully balanced by a touch of Perle hops. A portion of the grains used was roasted in the oven at Lompoc's Fifth Quadrant restaurant, giving the beer a slight biscuity flavor. The beer is 5% ABV and 15 IBUs. Lompoc Oktoberfest will be on draft in all five of Lompoc's pubs beginning Sept. 13. –source, 5th Quadrant & Lompoc Brewing
Nothing more to say other than get over to the Fifth Quadrant to wrap your senses around a traditional, German brew.
