Wild Heaven “Fest Beer” makes a second seasonal appearanceadmin
Wild Heaven Fest Beer returns for a second time this week.
A few years ago, brewery co-founder Eric Johnson debuted Autumn Defense, his rendition of the fall transitive beer. Defense was an ale, with a pronounced bright citrus flavor and brewed heavy-handedly with Munich malt. A festbier in spirit, but as Johnson admits – not very traditional.
Wild Heaven Fest Beer follows a more traditional path. This release is a true Marzen lager, which features the Grungeist hop. “That hop is amazing,” Johnson says. ” I believe it has Hallertauer parentage and has a rosewater flavor like Tettnanger that works so well with the lightly toasted malt.”
It’s a result you can taste. It’s fall lager season and this beer really is every bit Octoberfest that you are craving as the leaves change.
Wild Heaven Fest Beer will be available on draft and 12-ounces cans for a limited time starting this week.
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.
Latest Return: Mid September 2019
