Tröegs Oktoberfest Returns To Celebrate the German Beer Festival Season

Tröegs Oktoberfest Returns To Celebrate the German Beer Festival Season

Tröegs Oktoberfest Returns

Its August 1st…

Its August 1st…. and so you know what that means…. its time for Oktoberfest! Yes, it doesn’t seem as ridiculous as it sounds. Firstly – Germany celebrates Oktoberfest in September, and secondly, distribution and sales and marketing dictates release dates – not the Pennsylvanian weather.

The Mad Elf has been put away, Christmas in July is over, and now its time to bring out the Oktoberfest. The next great season of the calendar year is upon us.

The general store at Tröegs is cleared out of the Mad Elf, the Mad Elf Grand Cru, and all of the other Christmas in July items and drinks, and now in comes the Oktoberfest, soon will come in Hop Cyclone, and the fall season starts to begin to get underway at Tröegs Brewery.

John Trogner – Tröegs brewmaster and co-founder

Tröegs Oktoberfest is 6.1% ABV – not too high and not too low either. The lager is true to its origins, a good toasty lager that would make any Bavarian happy. Brewer tasting notes for the Oktoberfest are caramel, toasted oats, sweet caramel, fresh baked bread, and flowering herbs.

Troegs Independent Craft Brewing collaborated with German artist David Leutert to make the can label and some of the artwork on merchandise. They have also collaborated with another artist for the tee shirts that will be released to celebrate the Oktoberfest season. Leutert took inspiration from the Bavarian flag and the traditional bier halls of Bavaria to create the design. Festzelte is the Bavarian bier gardens that you see traditionally in pop culture with the tents and the white and blue everywhere.


Troegs Brewing has several lagers to scratch any lager fan’s itch. They have the year round Troegenator Double Bock, they have the Sunshine Pilsner, they also currently have When in Doubt (a helles lager) and they’ve had some recent scratch lagers – Scratch 491 and 496 in particular. The Oktoberfest Lager joins their Long Live Lagers celebration series.

Oktoberfest Lager can be found in 12-oz bottles and 12-oz cans. You can use their Tröegs Brew Finder to find it.

Oktoberfest Celebration

Troegs Independent Craft Brewing has announced that their yearly Oktoberfest will be ten days this year. Running from September 14th to September 24th. They will have beer releases, as well as new merchandise for the event, and of course German authentic food and steins as well.

We are working on a massive project here at The Beer Thrillers. We are creating a map of all of the breweries across the United States. State by state we are adding maps of all of the different states with every brewery in each state. (We will eventually get to the US Territories, as well as the Canadian Provinces, and possibly more countries; as well as doing some fun maps like a map of all the breweries we’ve been to, and other fun maps.) You can find the brewery maps here:

We are also working on a project of creating printable and downloadable PDFs and resources to be able to check and keep track of all of the breweries you’ve been to. So stay tuned for that project once we are finished with the Brewery Maps of the US States.
