MILFORD, Connecticut and SAN DIEGO, California— Athletic Brewing Company, America’s leading producer of non-alcoholic craft beer, announced the fifth annual release of its classic non-alcoholic Oktoberfest. This seasonal Fest Brew was created to pair perfectly with fall weather and autumn activities, from cool hikes to homecoming tailgate parties.
Inspired by traditional Bavarian Festbiers, this flavorful, slightly-sweet golden brew boasts a clean malt backbone from Vienna and Munich malts, and light bitterness from a dosing of Hallertau Mittelfruh hops. It pairs well with everything from hot pretzels to hearty, cool-weather dishes, and contains only 70 calories.
“Our Oktoberfest brew is reminiscent of what you’d experience during the Bavarian fall season,” explains Marco Garcia, Brewery Manager at Athletic Brewing Company. “It’s full-bodied with malty undertones, and delicately balanced with a slight hop finish. This brew pairs perfectly with the crisp autumn air and is best enjoyed with friends and family.”
Sporting a new look in 2023, Athletic Brewing’s Oktoberfest was a first-of-its-kind non-alcoholic brew in America when it was first released in 2019. It is now available nationwide at select U.S. retailers in 6-pack 12 oz. cans for between $9.99 – $11.99. It is also available in 6-pack 12 oz. cans for $14.99 on athleticbrewing.com.
