Ectoberfest is a traditional German-style lager brewed with German malt and hops. Brown in color, this lager is sweet and malty with very little bitterness. As with all lagers, this beer was fermented at cooler temperatures (50°F), and conditioned for over a month. The style of beer is called Oktoberfest, however, “Ecto”berfest is derived from Chris Ericson’s nickname “Ecto” (from back in his college hockey days). Oktoberfest beers are traditionally brewed in celebration of the fall season, and normally coincide with the German Oktoberfest Festivals which take place in early October. Our version of this beer is extremely popular and will probably only be on tap throughout October.
