Ayinger October Fest-Märzen  (Steve's favorite)

Taste: Rich, golden color. Slightly sweet, malty nose. Medium to big body and alcohol. Soft dryness from long maturation.

Traditionally served in tall earthenware or glass mugs.

Mother’s Octoberfest

Over a month of lagering ensures the clean finish off Mother’s traditional Märzen. Predominant malt flavor and light body make for a festival beer of which having just one is simply not an option.

PROFILE: graham cracker and sweet malt, noble spicy hops, crisp finish with a faint lingering sweetness 5.5% ABV

Sam Adams Octoberfest

In 1810, the Oktoberfest tradition was born when Munich celebrated the Crown Prince's wedding with a special beer and 16-day party. Our version of this classic style blends hearty malts for a deep, smooth flavor with notes of caramel, creating a brew that’s perfect for the season, or whatever you're celebrating.

Shiner Octoberfest

Shiner’s festive Marzen-style ale uses traditional German malts for a rich flavor and a dry, moderately hoppy finish. Made for stein raising, polka dancing and pretzel scarfing. Extra style points for downing one while wearing lederhosen. 5.7% ABV, 18 IBUs

Boulevard Bob's 47
Oktoberfest / Märzen

Their fall seasonal beer, Bob’s ’47 Oktoberfest is a medium-bodied, dark amber brew with a malty flavor and well-balanced hop character. With this Munich-style lager we salute our friend Bob Werkowitch, Master Brewer and graduate of the U.S. Brewer’s Academy, 1947. 5.8% ABV, 27 IBUs

Sierra Nevada Octoberfest

A German-American collaboration on the classic festival beer.

Each year, Sierra Nevada partners with a different German brewer to explore the roots of Germany’s famous Oktoberfest beers. This year, they're collaborating with Germany’s Brauhaus Miltenberger, whose approach to the classic style they've long admired. The result is a festival beer true to their style—deep golden in color with deceptively rich malt flavor and balanced by traditional German-grown whole-cone hops.

Lost Forty Hunter

THE HUNTER Oktoberfest is deep coppery gold in color with spicy noble hop aromas and flavors.

The mild, warm spice notes of THE HUNTER are derived form the traditional German style noble hops Hallertau Mittlelfruh we used in their brew. The addition of Crystal hops lends a subtle hint of citrus for a more early-fall feel.. Its medium body, full carbonation and moderate alcohol is not overpowering, making this an easy drinking beer that will pair nicely with a plate of sausage and sauerkraut. 6.1% ABV

WiseAcres Octoberfest

Oktoberfest is a Marzen – a smooth, clean, malt forward German lager that was traditionally released each September for Oktoberfest in Munich. Toasty bread and subtlety sweet malt qualities emerge right before the beer abruptly, cleanly finishes. 5.9% ABV, 24 IBUs

“Gemütlichkeit” is a German word referring to communal joy usually involving a beer or two and is a prominent in the traditional Oktoberfest song “Ein Prosit.”

Paulaner Oktoberfest Märzen

Paulaner Oktoberfest Märzen Is an amber beer style that was developed over 200 years ago to celebrate the original Oktoberfest. The Märzen name comes from “March beer” because it was historically brewed in March to be at peak flavor for the Oktoberfest celebration. Today this style is available year round in the US due to popular demand.

This full bodied beer with its rich malt flavor and dark toffee note, has an underlying fruitiness and masterful hop balance. It will instantly turn your own four walls into an Oktoberfest tent. Prost!

Spaten Octoberfest

World’s First Oktoberfest Beer

The beer of Munich’s famous Oktoberfest: aromatic, savory, gold-colored. 5.9% ABV, 23 IBUs

Hofbräu Oktoberfestbier

The Munich Beer Festival, or Oktoberfest, is an event of superlatives - it's the largest popular festival in the world, staging in the beer metropolis of Munich. Millions of visitors from all over the world flock along every year to enjoy its very special atmosphere.

For this occasion, Hofbräu brews a rich, full-bodied beer which goes down ideally with traditional Bavarian cuisine. With its deliciously bitter taste and alcoholic content of 6.3% volume, Hofbräu Oktoberfestbier is as special as the Beer Festival itself.

Type: Bottom-fermented, light festive beer

Weihenstephaner Festbier

A full rich bodied, hoppy, seasonal lager. Especially brewed for the Festbier season. This beer truly represents the Bavarian way of celebrating. Deep gold color, great mouthfeel and lots of flavor. Prost! 5.8% ABV, 26 IBUs

Springfield Brew Co. Meyhem Marzen

A wonderfully malty lager with aromas reminiscent of toasted bread, baked crackers and caramel; flavors that are rich without being sweet. 5.0% ABV, 22 IBUs

Schlafly Pumpkin Ale

Schlafly Pumpkin Ale blends the spices of the harvest with full-bodied sweetness for a beer that tastes like pumpkin pie. Pounds of pumpkin form a malty foundation that supports the fall flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove.

While pumpkin beers were produced in the early days of the American colonies, they were different from the pumpkin beers we know today. Colonists used pumpkin and squash as the fermenting medium, since malted barley was scarce. Once malt became more readily available, it replaced these alternatives to grain. In the 1990’s, American craft brewers reintroduced the style to the delight of pumpkin beer drinkers. 8% ABV, 16 IBUs

New Belgium Voodoo Ranger Atomic Pumpkin

"Enough with the run-of-the-mill pumpkin beers. I’m not interested in an ale that takes cues from a frozen coffee drink, and neither are you. That’s why I made Atomic Pumpkin. Does it really feature Habanero peppers? Yep! What about Saigon Cinnamon? Ding! I round it all out with a hearty malt bill that makes for a spicy brew that puts the “Fun” back in Pumpkin. (Spelling was never my strength)." -- Voodoo Ranger 6.4% ABV, 10 IBUs

Core Pumpkin Pie Lager

American Pale Lager, 5.8% ABV
The taste in this years Pumpkin Pie Lager is explosive and delivers everything that you could want as the weather cools off.

Breckenridge Autumn Ale

This fall seasonal combines the malty goodness of a German lager with the clean crispness of an American ale. Brewed with Munich malts and a delicate blend of Bavarian hops, it's a full-bodied treat with a nutty-sweet middle, a warming alcohol level and notes of toasted grains. A pre-winter winner. 7.0% ABV, 21 IBUs

Fossil Cove Blizzle Black IPA

The Blizzle features notes roasted dark malts and cacao balanced by a crisp pine and grapefruit character.

New Brews at LW

Evil Twin Sumo in Sidecar
American IPA

This is Evil Twin's take on a classic cocktail with an Asian twist and a cool name. An IPA with apricot and a slim hint of umami. It's crisp, fruity and perhaps full-bodied. 7.0% ABV

Flor Prosecco

Renowned Chef Mario Batali and partners Joe Bastianich and Lidia Bastianich created this delicate and fruity Prosecco to serve as house wine in all his restaurants. Flor is delicate, fragrant, and fresh, a sparkler full of citrus and stone fruit flavors, with fine bubbles and creamy mousse, finishing with a tasty little almond bite.

Grochau Cellar Pinot Blanc
Willamette Valley, Oregon

Grochau Cellars was founded in 2002 with the goal of producing wines true to their terroir with minimal intervention and manipulation of winemaking technique. Grochau Cellars is the project of John Grochau and his wife Kerri. After more than 13 years working as a sommelier in Portland, John made the leap into winemaking, first at Oregon pioneer Erath and then as Doug Tunnel’s assistant at the esteemed Brick House Wines for four years.

With vineyard selection, Grochau seeks out vineyards dedicated to non-interventionist farming techniques (organic when feasible, sustainably focused, environmentally sensitive) and work closely with the growers so that their fruit sources can become the wines Grochau strives to make. In the cellar the philosophy is pretty simple. As John says “Don’t screw it up. Resist the urge to do too much.” Modern winemakers have such an array of options available to them it’s staggering. Micro-oxygenation. Wine concentrators. Enzyme addition. Not to mention the temptation so many indulge to beat an otherwise fine wine over the head with a battery of new oak. Grochau eschews all this. Minimal handling, native yeast fermentation, no enzyme additions, minimal use of new oak: these are the hallmarks of their wines. Honest, accurate, true to their roots and to the wonderful subtleties of vintage variation.

GC Pinot Blanc is a crisp, refreshing white wine to sip on the back porch on a relaxing autumn evening.

Cavicchioli Prosecco

Cavicchioli 1928 Prosecco DOC Spumante Extra Dry is made from 100% Glera grapes. In the province of Treviso, the vines are grown mostly on a flat fertile terrain of medium texture.

In the winery, under-ripe grapes (in order to preserve well the acidity), hand picked, are vinified in white with the skins at a temperature of 8-10°C (cryomaceration) for about 12 hours; the alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperature of 16-18°C is followed by the second fermentation using the Charmat method at a temperature of 12-14 °C for about 15-24 days.

Cavicchioli 1928 Prosecco DOC Spumante Extra Dry features, when poured and tasted, white foam; lively, fine and persistent perlage; pale straw yellow color; an intense aroma of candied fruits and sweet flowers; and a fresh and delicate taste with an aromatic finish; its alcohol is 11%.

Lolea No. 1 Red Sangria

Traditional tasting notes begin by talking about color and appearance. Here there are no surprises... a light cherry red tone, clean, bright and attractive with a slight effervescence of fine, steady bubbles. Next is the olfactory phase. Here, Lolea sets itself apart from all other sangrias that we have tasted so far. It smells like a fresh, young wine! And of cherry, orange peel, lemon drops, cinnamon and sour strawberry. Its intense, pleasant aromas are married with crisps nuances of grapes and sweet fruit. But the best has yet to come. Full-bodied and ample on the palate, Lolea confirms all the olfactory suspicions, following them with the experience of a wide array of ripe red berries and blue flowers, where you appreciate the noblest part of the wine and tannins. It has a very silky carbonic composition and slightly bitter finish that invites you to enjoy it.

Lolea No 2 Sparkling White Sangria

This Clarea boasts its own special personality. An aromatic Mediterranean Muscat grape is used for the wine base and a subtle hint of vanilla blends with essential citrus aromas of lemon and orange, without losing freshness. The result is a very balanced and elegant Clarea, more sophisticated and chic than its red wine twin but equally fine with a persistent flavor and fragrance, hints of jasmine, apricot and loquat, and a great balance between acidity and sweetness.

Sexton Single Malt Irish Whiskey

Crafted in the Ancient & Wild North Coast of Ireland, Deep in the Heart of County Antrim.
Triple distilled in Copper Pots
100% Irish Malted Barley
Matured in ex-sherry butts

A Sexton is a person in charge of church grounds and graveyards including grave digging.

"Up in the cold grey northern reaches of County Antrim the Sextons tend to the spirits digging the fresh graves of the river Bush graveyard and planting stone crosses in the soft mowed grass.

But show up just before dawn when the dew is glistening on the headstones and the cool morning breeze rushes through - carrying the scent of the unmistakable oak from a breathing casks; follow that scent down into the crypt and you might find a locked door, faintly glowing at its edges.

Through that door, find the rows of beckoning European oak, once the sacramental casks of fine sherry, now brimming with aqua vitae."

Kavalan Single Malt Whisky

Established in 2005, Kavalan is Taiwan’s first whisky maker and the nation’s only family-owned whisky distillery. Kavalan takes the old name of Yilan county where the distillery is located in northeastern Taiwan.

Infused Spirits Craft Vodka

"Introducing the world's first single bottle infusions. It is easy to get lost in the liquor aisle. That's why we use real fruit and spices - so you can SEE what's inside every bottle. We don't just tell you it's infused, we show you inside every single bottle. In fact, we are the only single-bottle infusion company that sticks to this philosophy: natural, real ingredients inside every bottle. No added sugars, dies, or artificial ingredients - ever."

Infuse Spirits Lemon

This gold-medal winning infusion at the New York International Spirits Competition is something to be marveled. The twists and turns of the thinly cut peel make for a perfect artistic visual in the seemingly flawless craft vodka.

Thin ribbons of lemon peel visible inside the bottle speak to this brand’s natural-infusion ethos. The vodka has a pale yellow hue and bright candied-lemon peel scent. The liquid feels silky and viscous on the tongue, and evokes waxy lemon peel flavors. Well-chilled, this is a bracing martini option.

Infuse Spirits Peach

A wave of fresh peaches caress your nostrils from the moment you uncork the bottle. No fake peach flavoring here: instead you'll find a familiar, pleasantly sweet, true-peach scent.

Perhaps because the vodka is made from a corn base, the bright tawny liquid is reminiscent of peach-flavored Bourbon: it has a boozy presence, and a long finish that hints at vanilla and bruised peaches.

Infuse Spirits Cinnamon Apple

"Double Gold & Best-In-Show 'Flavored' Vodka 2014"
- San Francisco World Spirits Comp

"A whiskey-brown spirit with numerous apple slices floating at the top of the bottle. The nose is pure apple, with touches of cinnamon, just like grandma used to bake. Smooth as silk on the body — the vodka is really only evident on the finish, as the sweet, dessert-like character of the product takes center stage... a fun change of pace to be sure." 'A' Rated Vodka.
-Christopher Null,

Infuse Spirits Mango Habanero

Perfectly paired with a Bloody Mary, there is serious spiciness and flavor created by our mango Habanero infusion, not to be mistaken for other pepper or chipotle vodkas.

Strong orange-gold color, with aromas of fresh mangos and subtle peppers and spiced hazelnut. Hot and sweet medium body and interesting hint of papaya and mango amongst the various pepper jelly notes. One of a kind.
