Saranac 1888 Octoberfest is a true Oktoberfest beer brewed with German hops – Perle and Saphir combined with crystal and caramel malts for a nicely toasted malt character and deep caramel color. This recipe has been with the Matt family for four generations. When FX Matt founded the company, he made it a point to only allow English to be spoken at the brewery.  In his honor, Saranac forgoes the traditional “Oktoberfest” spelling.
