Kids activities include face painting and crafts as well as handcrafted Root Beer from Ross at Atlas Soda.
Breakside will tap their new “Oktoberfest Lager” our take on the classic German style.
This Fest Lager comes just in time for the cooler days of fall. while many contemporary German versions of this style are very light and many American interpretations are hoppy and more robust, we’ve brewed a more classic German┬¡style M├ñrzen. it is lightly caramelly and golden with a beautiful orange hue. bready malt notes are offset by a light, herbal hop flavor. we use substantial amounts of Vienna and Munich malts to give this beer a delicate sweetness, but the body remains light and the finish dry. we’re sure that you’ll want to drink it by the liter!
This is as food┬¡friendly as any beer we can think of. enjoy it in good company with a wide range of grilled meats, fall vegetables, and spicy dishes.
5.3% ABV 25 IBU malts: Vienna, Munich, Pilsner, Melanoidin hops: Opal
