Franconian beer has a rich history and is perfect for a Real Oktoberfest. For our upcoming celebration, we’ll be bringing in Germany gravity kegs (sometimes called Bayerische Anstich kegs) from various breweries scattered around Franconia. For those that have been to Bamberg, or just about any Franconian village, you’ll recognize these kegs, which are typically set on the bar for serving and are the traditional serving vessels of the Franconian keller.

For our Real Oktoberfest Weekend (Friday, October 5th, through Sunday, October 7th) we’ll be offering a rotation of these interesting and unusual beers:

  • Mahr’s Ungespundet
  • Mahr’s Unfiltered Pils
  • Mahr’s Hell
  • Bayer Theinheim Landbier
  • Niklbrau Michala Kellerbier
  • Weissenohe Unfiltered Pils
  • Weissenohe Altfrankisch Kloster
  • Weissenohe Monk’s Fest
  • Weissenohe Classic Bioland
  • Lowenbrau Buttenheim Keller
  • Aufsesser Festbier
  • Kraus Hirschaid Hirschentrunk
  • Sauer Rossdorf Urbrau

Well also feature some German-style American beers, such as Victory Fest, Mission Amber Altbier, Mission Blond Koslch-style. Plus we’ll have a great selection of Harvest Beers for our upcoming $10 Tuesday Tastings:

Mark your calendars now, and see you starting Friday!
