There’s nothing quite like a royal wedding or the Chicken Dance to unite folks in silly revelry, and likely why Oktoberfest (which began over 200 years ago as the Bavarian Crown Prince Ludwig’s marriage celebration) is so beloved. Arguably the crowning moment of any Oktoberfest is when the oom-pah band plays the opening chords of the Chicken Dance, and young and old flock to the dance floor for some feather-brained fun. Perhaps a glass of this golden Ludwig Festbier – with its smooth maltiness and floral hop aroma – will put you in the mood to shake your tail feathers!

Festbier is a relatively modern German style which is now the main beer brewed for the Bavarian Oktoberfest celebrations in place of the darker and heavier Marzen style. In keeping with custom and quality we've brewed this Ludwig Festbier with German imported floor malted grains and continental Hallertau Tradition hops. The result is an exceptionally clean and smooth beer with an elegant malt character and floral hop finish.
