Widmer Brothers Okto Festival Ale

Widmer Brothers Okto Festival Ale has sweet bready malt and caramel flavors

Brothers Kurt and Rob Widmer transitioned from homebrewers to brewery founders in 1984, during the infancy of the craft beer movement.

The brewery lays claim to a number of firsts, including: the first brewery to introduce an American-style Hefeweizen; the first American brewery to offer a full four-seasonal beer line-up, which it accomplished in 1986 when its Oktoberfest beer was first offered: and the first American brewery to brew an Oktoberfest style. Available August through October, this amber/copper offering is actually a German Altbier style, brewed with ale yeast that's Americanized through its use of locally grown Alchemy and Willamette hops. The hops impart a mild bitterness and subtle floral note, allowing the sweet bready malt and caramel flavors to dominate. The beer finishes crisp and clean with some floral hop and pleasant bread-like aftertaste.
