Grab Fall by the Stein at Oktoberfest

TORONTO, Sept. 29, 2014 /CNW/ - As a tribute to the legendary beer halls of Germany, Rickard's launched their fall seasonal, Lederhosen, at the Concordia Club just before the kick-off to Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest. Guests enjoyed the new brew between the sound of polka music, clinking steins and throngs of people yelling "prost".

The Oktoberfest-style dark amber larger has a smooth medium body with a striking hoppy finish and is the perfect complement to fried salty foods like bratwurst or a plate of Schweinsbraten (Bavarian pork roast).

Rickard's Head Brewmaster, Keith Armstrong, describes what makes Lederhosen the right choice for Oktoberfest celebrations. "We are really excited to bring an Oktoberfest-style lager to the market. The strong hoppy finish and beautiful malt characters makes this brew incredibly refreshing and the perfect festival companion."

To check out the festivities and get a taste of the excitement, see the link below.

Rickard's Lederhosen is available nationally for a limited time only, while supplies last, and Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest can be enjoyed from October 10-18, 2014.
