(ASHEVILLE, N.C.) — Latch up your lederhosen and don your dirndls, Hi-Wire Brewing’s Zirkusfest Oktoberfest Lager has returned bigger, brighter, and better than ever in six-packs of 16-ounce cans with a festive new yellow, blue, and white design. This annual fall seasonal release brought home the 2016 Gold Medal in the Great American Beer Festival’s German-style Märzen category for the Asheville, North Carolina-based brewery, and the award-winning recipe (6% ABV) remains the same today.
Rich Munich malt from Bamberg, Germany’s Weyermann Specialty Malts elicits biscuit and honey flavors at the forefront that cascade into a light, dry finish. Six-packs of 16-ounce cans are available from now until October across Hi-Wire Brewing’s nine state distribution footprint as well as the brewery’s nine taproom locations spread throughout the Southeast. Hi-Wire is also shipping Zirkusfest Oktoberfest to 34 states via shop.hiwirebrewing.com, or if you’re near a taproom, you can raise a frosty stein with friends at one of the beer-maker’s seven upcoming Oktoberfest celebrations.
