Oktoberfest Brewed by Blue Point Brewing - Patchogue, NY


Blue Point Oktoberfest Brewed by Blue Point Brewing Company - Patchogue, New York   

Blue Point brews their Oktoberfest beer as a tribute to the Märzen beers that have been served at Germany’s Oktoberfest celebrations since 1818. Traditionally, these lagers are brewed in March and fermented slowly during the summer months.

Their version of this traditional autumn lager boasts a sweet malt aroma with notes of caramel and tastes of bready, toasted malts with a subtle sweetness. The flavors are rounded out with a hint of hops in the finish. Not one to stray from tradition, this brew is stored cold for 10 days after brewing to ensure the distinctly smooth flavor that this style of beer is known for.

Beer Review by Beer Advocate
Appearance: Pours a pretty, clear, lighter golden color with a quarter of a finger of white head that quickly dissolved into a very thin halo of foam that gripped the sides of the glass and formed a few wispy clouds that collected in the center of the top of the beer.

Aroma: Like most Oktoberfest beers, it is very malty and bready, with notes of freshly baked bread or pretzels, and some notes of caramel, black pepper and clover.

Taste: Very similar to the aroma, lots of bready malt up front, followed by some caramel-like sweetness and nicely rounded out by some wonderfully balanced hoppy bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium with some good carbonation to tickle the taste buds. With an ABV of only 5.5% there is no alcohol presence on the palate

Overall: This is another very solid American example of an Oktoberfest beer. Nicely balanced, extremely quaffable. I liked it a lot, and I’ll certainly add it to my Oktoberfest rotation.

Blue Point Brewing Company
When Mark and Pete named Blue Point Brewery, they knew it was a name that would come with high expectations. For years, the pair traveled the world, exploring different cultures, people, and, most importantly, beer. Combining their skills, discoveries and trained palates, in 1998 they launched a brewery worthy of its historic name. After all, you can’t associate yourself with the home of the famous Blue Point Oysters that were loved by Queen Victoria without being the absolute best at your craft. Nearly 20 years later, it’s obvious they’ve risen to the call.

What started as two beer nuts chatting over a few pints quickly grew into Long Island’s first and finest craft brewery. Mark and Pete’s shared passion for beer comes through with every recipe, barrel and pint. Pour yourself our flagship Toasted Lager alongside a platter of oysters on the half-shell. Then take home a six-pack of Hoptical Illusion or Mosaic to remind yourself and your friends what really, really good beer tastes like. Our job is simple—keep brewing good beer that we like to drink. If you don’t like it, well… to each his own.
