EVANSTON, Illinois – Award-winning Temperance Beer Co. is toasting to nine years of brewing beer with the release of their Oktoberfest Märzen-style lager and a celebration at the brewery complete with fest food, oompah music, and limited-edition steins on Friday, September 9.
Temperance’s Oktoberfest is crisp and refreshing with a slightly sweet malt backbone, perfect for the upcoming Autumn season and harvest celebrations and is available now on tap, 16 oz. 4-pack cans, and out for distribution.
“If I could go back and tell my nine-years-younger self that we would be brewing an incredible Oktoberfest beer and make hundreds of people happy at an amazing Oktoberfest party nine years in the future, well I’m not sure I would believe what I was hearing. I’m thrilled this fest is how we’re celebrating all the ups and downs over the past nine years of pioneering beer in Evanston.” – Founder, Josh Gilbert
