Impression: Really love their regular beers and the few seasonal beers I’ve had on tap but they have quite a few and it’s not a super easy place to get to without a fair hike. So, it’s always nice to find some of them in bottled form. I’d recently had their very tasty Silber Bock so was intrigued to see if this Festbier would hold up. While much less complex, it’s nonetheless a very balanced brew with ample hops and enough hops to dry it out in the finish. It’s a nice 5.9% so still a sessionable beer too.
