“Our Oktoberfest and Pumpkin Ale are two of our most anticipated seasonal beers for good reason. Experienced beer drinkers across the country have named Schlafly’s Pumpkin Ale as one of the best, and we intend to continue to earn that title, by using the same blend of seasonal spices to make a fresh, pumpkin-forward beer,” says Lead Brewer Jared Williamson. “Oktoberfest is a true-to-style German beer with Munich malt and German hops that honors Schlafly’s German heritage.”
Pumpkin Ale (8.0% ABV): Schlafly Beer’s special release Pumpkin Ale has been an award-winning (Thrillist and Delish) seasonal staple for over 10 years. Pumpkin Ale highlights sweetness and spice. Intended to taste like a slice of pumpkin pie in a bottle, the squash-forward beer is balanced with a blend of seasonal spices.
Schlafly’sOktoberfest (5.5% ABV): Authentic in its execution and evocation of heritage, Munich malt and German hops contribute to the smooth and clean traditional Märzen brew. Amber in color and balanced in its sweetness and toasted malts, the celebratory autumnal style is a tribute to Schlafly’s German roots.
Pumpkin Ale and Oktoberfest are available across Schlafly’s distribution in 6-packs of 12-oz cans. For information on Schlafly Beer’s distribution and products, visit Schlafly’s website.
