Beer Tasting 4 - 7pm Friday, Sep 6

Your host will be Alex of Harry's. 
A crisp evening last night reminds us that Autumn is upon us. The first leaves have begun change and at our house, we even have a smattering on the lawn. It is time to begin to think of cooler days and evenings. 
It is all Germany tonight with the slightly lighter style of its traditional Oktoberfest brew as compared to the american pumpkins brews that are also arriving. 
Stop by tonight and help us to wish a fond fairwell to what will surely be a stubborn exit of summer and welcome in one of the most recognizable seasons in New England, Fall, in all of its brilliant majesty of color and festive spirit.

Spaten Oktoberfest                           $10.29/6pb
Amber in color. This medium bodied beer has achieved its impeccable taste by balancing the roasted malt flavor with the perfect amount of hops. Having a rich textured palate with an underlying sweetness true to tradition.

Paulaner Oktoberfest                        $9.99/6pb
This beer is an institution: the Oktoberfest Bier from Paulaner, with its full-bodied, pleasant taste definitely pairs beautifully with the hearty delicacies along with Hendln or Schweinshaxen. Its alcohol content of 6 % volume makes it somewhat stronger than the usual lager beer. The original gravity of the Oktoberfest Beer is also slightly higher, starting at 13.5 %. With a hint of malty sweetness the Oktoberfest Beer possesses the perfect balance.

Ayinger Oktoberfest                         $3.49/500ml
This has a deep golden color tinted with amber. It is lightly sweet with a malty nose balanced with floral hops. Its medium to big body and alcohol is not overpowering. The soft dryness comes from long maturation.

Weihenstephaner Oktoberfest         $11.59/6pb
A full rich bodied, hoppy, seasonal lager. Especially brewed for the Festbier season. This beer truly represents the Bavarian way of celebrating. Deep gold color, great mouthfeel and lots of flavor. Prost!
