Savannah, GA — Service Brewing Company (SBC), a veteran-owned and operated craft brewery, based in Savannah, Georgia has announced their Oktoberfest Kickoff taking place Saturday, September 19th, the official start of Germany’s largest beer festival, from 11:30a.m.– 5:00p.m.
In true tradition of the Oktoberfest celebration, at exactly 12:00p.m. SBC will tap the first barrel of their fall seasonal, Teufel Hunden, an Oktoberfest-style Märzen. This classic german lager holds a deep copper hue, a toasted malt aroma and a clean dry finish and will be a limited release brew in celebration of the upcoming fall season.
The Teufel Hunden name originates from the military folklore of the WWI Marine soldiers. The fortitude and ferocity shown by Marines earned them a fearsome nickname by their German counterparts: Teufel Hunden, or “Devil Dogs.” That savage sobriquet has stuck around to inspire new generations of soldiers towards honor and tenacity.
Proceeds for the event will also be the kickoff fundraiser for SBC’s fall charity, The Raider Project. The Raider Project is a non-profit that connects MARSOC/USMC combat veterans with other veterans to help them transition smoothly, peacefully, and successfully into the private sector.
During the event, CEO, Kevin Ryan, will man the grill serving his infamous brats and sauerkraut for in-kind donations to go towards Raider Project. Other highlights for the evening will include DJ Jose Ray spinning vinyl until 5:00p.m. and a raffle of special Service gifts every 30 minutes.
Dedicated to honoring those that have put their lives at risk and their country and community first, Service Brewing donates a portion of their revenue to assist charities that support military service. Through a grassroots effort, Service is giving back to those that have served by crafting authentic American made beers for both the curious and experienced consumer.
While brewing their year-round beers on a large-scale, they maintain a small-batch Research and Development division to enable experimentation and innovation using locally available ingredients. This helps maintain a connection from farmers to consumers using their beer and their mission.
