Sweetwater Brewing’s Dank Tank Series Returns With Danktoberfest

ATLANTA — SweetWater’s devilishly talented brewers are at it again. Just in time for a fall release, the boys have banded together to brew the first true lager style beer to come from the South’s second largest craft brewer. Danktoberfest, a high gravity Oktoberfest-style brew, is the latest creative brain-child to come from the brewery’s infamous Dank Tank series.

This full-bodied lager delivers a malty taste and bready aroma, packed with zesty hops and huge amounts of heat. Weighing in at a whopping 8.5% ABV, Danktoberfest is brewed with German malts and hops to include: Pilsner, Munich, Cara Munich, Aromatic, Dark Munich malts; and German Perle and Hallertau Mittelfruh hops.

Danktoberfest will be packaged in 22-ounce bottles and hit shelves in select locations starting the first week of October. Samples will also be available on draft at SweetWater’s Tasting Room on select tour dates. Fans should act fast and save some for the cellar. Mr. Dankenshnitzel won’t last long.

“We are excited to be able to break through our ‘ale wall’ and get our hands dirty with some serious lagering,” said SweetWater Head Brewer Nick Nock. “Carrying on the Oktoberfest tradition, we used fine German malts and hops, while adding in our own dankness to give it a classic SweetWater spin.”

SweetWater’s Dank Tank lineup is a series of rarely released beers from the hombres of headiness. These occasional treats from the dark side of SweetWater’s soul emerge from the brewery’s experimental one-hitterÔǪthe Dank Tank. Brewed only when the itch gets so bad, they just have to scratch it.
