When we heard this year’s Oktoberfest was cancelled, we knew couldn’t just let the most legendary beer festival in the world go without proper tribute. That’s why the brewers from Blue Point and Spaten teamed up to create ZümFest: a beer and virtual event that reinvents Oktoberfest and celebrates the new ways we connect. ZümFest is a Rye Marzen that pours golden to light copper in color. A full-bodied German-style Festbier with a Blue Point twist, this brew is hopped with a blend of new age and traditional hop varieties - Azacca, Spalt Select and Tradition. A portion is cold-fermented and lager conditioned in American Oak Foeders before blended back into the base beer. Tasting notes include fresh baked pumpernickel, orange blossom, crispy biscuits, soft spice, subtle oak vanillin character, clover honey, and a slight drying tannic finish.
ZümFest... To The Fest!
