The Kaiser

  • Dictator Series
  • Imperial Oktoberfest Lager
  • 9.3% ABV

The Kaiser once said, “Give me a woman who loves beer and I will conquer the world.” If the Kaiser and his significant other had tipped this bottle, we’d all be “sprechenden Deutsch!” We took all that is good in a traditional Oktoberfest – gorgeous, deep copper sheen, massive malty backbone and spicy, floral, pungent Noble hops – then intensified each into this, an Imperial Oktoberfest.

Suggested Pairings

Cherise: Kaiser's sweet maltiness balance the acidity from the kraut and mustard and pairs beautifully with the roasted vegetables.
