A Note on This Beer
Sure — you might think you can’t improve upon a 3-time GABF medal-winning, European Beer Star-awarded Lager.
But that’s because you haven’t met Rahr & Sons’ limited edition barrel-aged version!
The brewers took their decorated Marzen Lager, loaded it into oak bourbon barrels, and let it age for 12 weeks. The result is a brew that retains all the crisp, classic features of a good German Lager with complex notes of rich toffee and caramel. There’s a lil’ Kentucky charm in this German brew!
This year’s bourbon BarrelFest is smooth and full-bodied, concealing its 9.7% ABV well. Craft fans like @Will R. are buzzing about the rarely-seen combination, which gives the Lager “more body, more barrel presence, more flavor!”
This seasonal sipper proves that “Yeehaw!” is an appropriate response to “Prost!” Who knew? This Oktoberfest, we recommend trying a little Kentucky bourbon with your German Lager.
