Today, I wanted to talk about one of my favorite seasonal beers – Samuel Adams Octoberfest… This beer is talked about more often than any other seasonal beer we have in house; retailers & customers are asking for it in July! Samuel Adams Octoberfest is one of the largest seasonal beer offerings in the world and the largest Oktoberfest beer in the world. Samuel Adams Octoberfest has a 30% share of the fall seasonal segment and satisfies 74% of seasonal drinkers – significantly more than any other fall seasonal brand.

After one sip of Samuel Adams Octoberfest you’ll know why it’s so popular every fall –




Appearance:        Deep red amber

Aroma:                 Roasted malt, slightly sweet

Flavor:                  Smooth with a deep malt complexity and roasty sweetness with a light hop character

Mouthfeel:           Medium-bodied

Finish:                  Smooth and sweet


The smoothness and roasted malt character of OctoberFest make it a great pairing with roasted meats, bringing out a bit of sweetness that perfectly balances their savory flavor.  For a classic pairing you can’t beat sausage and roasted pork.  OctoberFest will also cut through the richness of creamy dishes like mac ‘n cheese or Crème Brûlé.

Entrees:             Sausage, roasted chicken, turkey, lamb, pork, pot roast, burritos,
