BinderPark Oktoberfest

The dark amber, malty, “traditional” Oktoberfest is actually referred to as Marzen in Germany, where it is associated with the arrival of spring, in March. It takes more after Bock-style beers than what is served at Oktoberfest in Munich. We did not make that kind of beer, we did not intend to make that kind of beer. For both of us, it’s a perfectly fine type of beer, but since all of Arcadia’s beers are open fermented with a British ale yeast strain, we didn’t want to enhance the fruitiness that comes from making that kind of beer, even when made with a lager strain. We were looking for something more refreshing, more “poundable.”
