Oktoberfest at Wicked Weed
And the action was at Wicked Weed as they kicked off their Oktoberfest season.
They brewed 3 special beers for the event and I tried two of them: the Fest Beer and the Uncle Rick's Pilsner.
Matt and I arrived around 7pm and were delighted when we discovered the downstairs/outdoor seating at Wicked Weed decorated for Oktoberfest. They had created a beer hall atmosphere with long tables and Oompah music. You can't help but tap your toes along to the tuba! I've never been to Oktoberfest in Germany, but I have been to one in Helen, Georgia, which is really the same thing, right?
I really enjoyed the Fest Beer, a traditional marzen beer. It was everything a marzen should be: dark gold, malty, and higher in alcohol than typical lagers.
I did not try the wheat beer they brewed for the occasion, but I did have the pilsner which was absolutely delightful, light, and refreshing. It had a surprising amount of flavor for a pilsner, which is known for being a very mild beer.
Oktobefest at Wicked Weed runs through this Friday, October 11th, so don't miss out! Check out these special German style beers while you still can!
