Green Bench Brewing Co. (St. Petersburg, Florida) has officially announced that it will begin the Seasonal Release of its Festbier Lager in mid-July 2021.
Their authentic take on the celebratory beer of Germany, Green Bench’s Festbier is a German-style Lager brewed with “imported German Pilsner, Vienna, and Munich malts” to create a “clean and moderately strong malty flavor . . . developed entirely from a traditional double decoction process and natural carbonation.” Coming in at 5.8% ABV, Festbier “is more akin to a heavy bodied Helles with more hop flavor.”
Festbier is rolling out now and will hang around through the Oktoberfest Season. You can expect to find this Seasonal Release available in 12 oz. cans and on draft at select craft beer-focused establishments located within Green Bench’s distribution footprint in Florida. Prost!
