4 Oktoberfest Beers you need to try!

Want to know what beers to drink during this fall season? We interview four outstanding Oktoberfest beers with special thanks to the guys over at Coastal Empire Beer Company!

Here are 4 Oktoberfest Beers you need to try! I had the pleasure of sitting down with Keven and Chris Haborak from the Coastal Empire Beer Co., to discuss and taste their four recommended beers for this fall season.

Now, I’m no cicerone or beer connoisseur, however after tasting these 4 deliciously refreshing beers, I think I have a better idea of what goes into producing such dynamic and intentional flavors. First off, these guys have a menu on tap that will blow your mind including several beers that they call single barrels, which they let you indulge in. Some of these become staples and the others they chalk up to taste tested experiments.

Just recently, the Coastal Empire Beer Co received a silver medal at the 2018 Great American Beer Festival (GABF) competition. Presented by the Brewers Association, GABF is the largest commercial beer competition in the world and recognizes the most outstanding beers produced in the United States. The top three winners in the competition’s 102 beer-style categories were announced September 22 at the Great American Beer Festival awards ceremony held at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, Colorado.

Coastal Empire Beer Co was recognized in the Field Beer beer-style category for its Coco Piña Gose, a tropical take on the classic sour German Gose style brewed with pineapple, coconut, pink Himalayan salt and sea salt. Coco Piña is pale gold in color and beer blends flavors of pineapple, coconut, pink Himalayan salt and sea salt with a nice refreshing tartness.  This beer pairs well with cerviche, arugula salad, scored flounder, Burrata, La Tur, and macadamia nut tart.  Coco Piña was first brewed in 2015 as a one off for our 4th anniversary but we were told quickly by our patrons and distributor to produce on a larger scale.  In the beginning Kevin, co-founder and head brewer, wanted nothing to do with the beer concept but subsequently nailed it on his first attempt.  The beer quickly became a fan favorite. Coastal Empire Beer Co is a 2200-barrel microbrewery located in Savannah, Georgia that specializes in brewing beers that meld well with coastal cuisine and lifestyle.

For this fall the 4 Oktoberfest beers you need to try are:

Tybee Island Blonde – Kolsch 4.7% ABV
Jefe Deloach -Hefeweizen 5.5% ABV
Jefe Deloach w/ Jalapeño – Spiced Hefeweizen 5.5% ABV
De-Stress Raspberry Mint – Berliner Weiss 5% ABV

Definitely swing by and try them yourselves and tell them that you saw them on Savannah Weekend!
