- Limited Release
- Imperial Oktoberfest Lager
- 8.0% ABV
Just in time for fall and its most notable Fest, this limited release Imperial Oktoberfest Lager is our emboldened Prost! to one of the world's most recognized styles. The Kaiser weaves together rich, toasted Vienna and Munich malts with the floral spiciness of Hellartau and Bravo hops to create a bold and brazen dry Imperial Oktoberfest. We took all that is good in a traditional Oktoberfest – a gorgeous deep copper sheen, massive malty backbone, and a dry finish – then intensified each attribute to create The Kaiser. Earning multiple GABF awards (Gold in 2009, Silver in 2014), this dictator demands a following through its deep dark malt bill, aromas of toast, nuts, and bread, all pulled together with a boisterous booziness. Eat, drink, and be merry!

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