Huss Brewing Releases Oktoberfest Beer |

Get into the spirit of Oktoberfest a little early with Huss Brewing Co.’s Oktoberfest Bavarian Märzen, which won the 2019 Silver Medal at the Great American Beer Festival in Denver. Huss’ co-owner and Brewmaster Jeff Huss handcrafted Oktoberfest Bavarian Märzen in late summer in Tempe. It is a traditional, German-style copper-red brew with a full-bodied but dry flavor and a slight malty sweetness.

You can buy Oktoberfest Bavarian Märzen at Huss Brewing Company Uptown at 100 E. Camelback Road, Suite 160 and Huss Tempe at 1520 W. Mineral Road, Suite 102 through the end of October. It also is available at retailers around the state. To learn more about Huss, visit hussbrewing.com. (Page 40)
