Prost, Chattanooga! The official Oktoberfest 2020 would have actually taken place from Sept. 19 to Oct. 4 in Munich, but due to COVID-19, the fest was cancelled this year. Our local fest at the Chattanooga Market was also cancelled, but that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate the 210-year-old festival from home.
Read on for a list of local fest beers to try in Chattanooga this year — you don’t have to miss out on a tasty German lager (or five) that tells us it’s officially sweater weather.
A cozy, caramel lagerbier brewed with Munich malt + traditional German hops.
Pilsner, Vienna, and Munich crystal malts are paired with German noble hops and Bavarian lager yeast — notes of toasted bread, biscuits, and floral aromas.
This Augustiner Märzen lager has a light body and a crisp, clean finish.
A traditional märzen brew with a soft hop profile + toasted malt flavors.
One of the classic malty styles — smooth, clean, and rich.
