Avery Brewing Company (Boulder, Colorado) has officially announced that The Kaiser Imperial Oktoberfest Lager is returning for a limited time during the 2018 Oktoberfest season.
Retired back in 2016 to “make room for other big beers in Avery Brewing’s lineup”, The Kaiser is back to bestow its faithful fans with a “bold and brazen” Imperial Oktoberfest Lager that “weaves together rich, toasted Vienna and Munich malts with the floral spiciness of Hallertau and Bravo hops.” Adorned with “a gorgeous deep copper sheen, massive malty backbone, and a dry finish . . ., this dictator demands a following through its deep dark malt bill, aromas of toast, nuts, and bread, all pulled together with a boisterous booziness.” Speaking of booziness . . . The Kaiser weighs in at an imposing 8% ABV, making it the same “mammoth . . . Oktoberfest Lager. . . that fans have grown to love” over the years.
“My favorite part of brewing Kaiser is the smell it creates in the brewhouse,” says Josh Rapp, Avery Brewing’s Brewhouse Manager. “It smells like we’re making candy around the brewery on Kaiser day and the dark red color of the wort reminds me of cherry juice!”
The Kaiser is rolling out now and plans to hang around through October 2018. You can expect to find this Seasonal offering available in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft at craft beer-friendly establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Colorado and throughout the rest of Avery Brewing Company’s distribution area. Prost!
