Anyone seen any yet? Hopefully we get a bit more than the gift pack nonsense and Erdinger.
Hopefully fresh Weihenstephan Festbier will arrive soon.
I'll be hated for this, but I really like the Sam Adams version. Even better than Spaten.
Usual suspects - Hofbrau, Lowenbrou, Hacker Pschorr, Weihenstephan, Spaten. Ordered the other day, so shouldnt be too fare away.
Maybe you can see the Sam Adams version next year jesus808, when the beers are getting brewed here in Australia.....
Saw unopened cases of it at Vintage Cellars today
Are they going to be brewed through CUB or Lion and taste like absolute shit?
I'm in the US just now and have had a couple of the Sam Adams. Not bad but it ain't no Hacker-Pschorr. Though I've never been able to buy it in anything other than one of those Dan Murphys packs with the Spaten, Paulaner and whatever the other one is.
Hunter Beer Co alwys do a few beers around the theme ...
Yeah, usually Lowenbrau. Bloody annoys me, wish they'd sell them outside of it.
Are you guys talking about Hacker-Pschorr Oktoberfest? That is a really nice beer. Bottle shop near me used to sell them individually but they weren't particularly cheap.
Yes. Where do you live?
Hacker tends to be pretty limited. We usually only get about 5 cases every Octoberfest. Also, that unopened Weihenstephan Festbeer must be an old one...or I'm not getting told about new beers again.
Pretty sure it was Camperdown Cellars (Parramatta Rd) in Sydney but I'm not confident they stock it anymore
Ah ok. I'm in Melbourne.
Do a trade
Joel I think you must have missed the memo! Tapped the Weihenstephan Festbier at Josie Bones last week...
Asked at Purvis and got doughnuts.
Bought a dozen for $52.
Does anyone know if there's any Augustiner in the country?
Oh yes, I did miss the memo, again. Casually asked when the Fest was available, "oh it's out already, would you like some?"
Even James Squire is brewing a Märzen this year. Well at least at the Perth location.
Will be grabbing a dozen Weihenstephans for sure.
Ok. Went to an Aldi today (looking for their frozen pretzels they appear to have ceased carrying) and checked the booze section.
Paulaner Oktoberfest 500ml bottles $3.99 a go (didn't see a case price)
Oktoberfest 4 pack (Paulaner, Spaten, HP and HB) $19.99
Paulaner Hefe 5 litre keg $29.99
Great pricing on the Paulaner eh?
wow, sounds good. Sadly don't think Aldi carries beer in Sydney
Got the fresh Weihenstephan Festbier - seems different to previous years. Used to have a more hoppy aromatics to it. Its a bit more like the beers I experienced at Oktoberfest (not brilliant but decent and very drinkable). Now its a bigger helles, but in the process seems to lose the subtlety of the helles and just gains some bitterness.
not every store has booze...
got some at work didnt check the date on it though
depends on the store. rydelmere does have some
Paulaner drinking well.
