St. Georgen-Bräu Hopfenzupfer

Schwanen-Bräu Weihnachtsfestbier

Schwanen-Bräu's Weihnachtestbier is a dark dry hoppy session beer with a nice grainy malty element to flesh things out for the festive season.

Wagner Bräu Oberhaider Mühlenbier is a rich spicy festbier of 5.5% with a nice lingering semi-dry finish.

Glenk Festbier

After some years being contract brewed by Stöckel in Hintergereuth, it appears Glenk has shifted to a closer contract brewer in neighbor Becher-Bräu. This Festbier is a fair example of the style with a rich amber hue and balanced malt palate.

Gessner Festbier is a richly malty brew more in the Märzen mold with a nice spicy character and lingering, bittersweet finish.

Bayer Bräu Bayerator is richly malty brew with a heady 7.2% alcohol content and a bittersweet finish. This brewery closed in 2011 but they have their beer contract-brewed at Arnsteinter.

Hummel Festbier Dunkel

Hummel Festbier dunkel is a decent and interesting Festbier as I find it refreshing to see a dark one. Good balance and drinkability with just a hint of chocolate.
