"A little brawling, a lot of drinking: fresh, happy and free, persevering and loyal: ready to go through fire for the king, that is a Bavarian.” - an inscription on a German beer stein
Throw on a dirndl and some lederhosen as we face off two beers for Oktoberfest: Samuel Adams' Octoberfest versus Franconia Brewing Company's Oktoberfest.
In one corner we have Samuel Adams (aka the Boston Beer Company): one of the older and bigger craft breweries, having been founded in the mid-1980s by Jim Koch. Currently they brew over 50 beer styles and sell to more than 20 countries.
In the other corner we have Franconia Brewing Company, a small brewer out of McKinney, Texas that was started by German immigrant Dennis Wehrmann, who is a descendant of a long line of brewers.
In the education corner, we talk about the origins and history of Oktoberfest.
