Top 10 Oktoberfest Beers
Literally translated as "hop time," Hopzeit is inspired by the flavors of a Märzenbier and combines classic malts with the latest hop varietals from Germany.
A cross between an IPA and a German Märzen, it's quite possibly a new beer style that has never been tried commercially. The Munich, Vienna and Pilsner malts create a toasted breadiness typical of a Märzen, but there’s also a bite from the German Herkules, Sterling and Hull Melon hops, which are more earthy and melon-like than the citrus notes usually found in IPAs. This experimental Oktoberfest from Deschutes appeals to those wanting to celebrate the season without giving up the hops.
