The Good, The Fresh and The Oktoberfest

The-Good-The-Bad-And-The-OktoberfestThe Good, The Fresh and The Oktoberfest

Fresh-hopped beer is an ephemeral thing, arriving only during hops harvest season, with its piney, citrusy taste and delicate fizz. Fresh hop festivals abound in the Northwest, but Peaks and Pints’ The Hunt For Fresh Hoptoberfest is the only month-long fresh hop celebration paired with Oktoberfest beers. We’re pouring bright, hop-hazy fresh-hop beers, just hours from field to kettle and mere days from the fermenter to your glass AND drink to your health, clean, hearty Oktoberfest-style lagers from Germany and nearby. We’ll wager our pretzel bread sticks you’ll drink both.

Since Sept. 3 is the third day of our The Hunt For Fresh Hoptoberfest we’re screening one of the best trilogies of all time — Sergio Leone’s three spaghetti Westerns starring Clint Eastwood: A Fistful of Dollars (1964), For A Few Dollars More (1965) and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966) — all day as you enjoy:
