Biers of McKinney Oktoberfest
Franconia Brewing Co.
A light golden, refreshing German beer that’s very popular in the mid-region of Germany. The Koelsch is brewed with two-row pale malt, malted wheat and Munich malt. The special ale yeast is used to give it a hint of citrus aroma and floral smell. The taste is light and refreshing with some citrus in the beginning and a nice dry hoppy finish with a little sweetness coming through at the end. This beer is perfect for all Texas’ seasons, and with its 4.8% ABV it's easy to manage one more.
A German brewery without an Oktoberfest beer wouldn't be...well, German! Franconia's Oktoberfest beer is brewed to exhibit an amber-colored Mearzen. Full body, malty and some German Hersbrucker hops make this 5% ABV beer the perfect celebration drink during the Oktoberfest season. This highly, sought after seasonal is available from September 1 until it runs out.
A classic style and highly drinkable “Helles” Lager. The clean, whole grain toast aromas follow through to a dry medium-to-full body with excellent balance of lightly honey malt, astringent citrus and earth accented hops on the finish. ABV = 5.1%
Hofbrau Amber Marzen (Oktoberfest)
The name derives from the fact that it was originally brewed in March,“German März.” It was brewed with more alcohol so it would last over the summer without spoiling. The use of Münchner malt (darker malt but not roasted) gives it the light amber color with a caramel and biscuit flavor with an intense hop aroma. ABV = 6.1%
Brewed with wheat, citrus, coriander, and California ale yeast, this is a killer, crisp and refreshing year-round brew. ABV = 5.6%
Inspired by classic Munich Oktoberfest beers, but with the spirit of Texas craft, this ale brings a roasted flavor while remaining drinkable. Take three cans, fill your stein, and strap on your lederhosen...it's time to chicken dance! ABV = 5.5%
