October 2015 Beer of the Month

Radeberger Pilsner

Crowned the official drink by King Friedrich August III of Saxony, Radenberger, a pilsner style beer brewed near Dresden, is characterized by its dazzling and refreshing taste and has long been enjoyed by German nobility.


It’s the #1 wheat beer in Germany and one of the world’s favourites. In fact, beer experts call it a masterpiece. In developing this beer, the Paulaner brew masters have perfected a unique technique with “yeast suspension”, resulting in a uniform slightly cloudy appearance, consistent quality and perfect taste.


Hofbrau Oktoberfest

Hofbrau brews a rich, full bodied beer which goes down ideally with traditional Bavarian cuisine. With its deliciously bitter taste and alcoholic content of 6.3% volume, Oktoberfestbier is as special as the Beer Festival itself. Type: Bottom Fermented, light festive beer.

Smuttynose Pumpkin Ale

Smuttynose Pumpkin Ale with real pumpkin and a blend of classic pumpkin pie spices in tribute to our colonial forebearers. Recipes calling for the use of pumpkins have been found from early European settlers in New England, when brewers sought to extend their supply of costly imported malt with locally grown ingredients, such as squash and “pompions”.

Samuel Adams Oktoberfest

In 1810, the Oktoberfest tradition was born when Munich celebrated the Crown Prince’s wedding with a special beer and a 16 day party. Our version of this classic style blends hearty malts for a deep, smooth flavour with notes of caramel creating a brew that’s perfect for the season, or whatever you’re celebrating.

Happy Jack is a wonderfully balanced Pumpkin Ale, with a hint of oak and spices, make this refreshing beer ideal to share with friends. Single-batch brewed with real pumpkin, whole spices and aged with oak.
