It’s Oktoberfest season, and Beering Ain’t Easy is bringing you an epic four beer Battle Royale:  International vs. National vs. State vs. Local.  Are Adam and Drew’s taste buds refined enough to tell the difference between the beers?  Will they even be coherent?  We’ll answer these questions, and bring also bring you a new Beering Ain’t East Segment - The Untappd Roast!

Episode Notes:

Featured Beers:  Mr. Oktoberfest - Texas Leaguer Brewery, Missouri City, TX.  Oktoberfest - Altstadt Brewery, Fredericksburg, TX.  Spaten Oktoberfest Ur-Marzen, Munich, Bayern Germany.  Octoberfest Beer - Bell’s Brewery, Comstock, MI.

Tasting Notes:  Tough to differentiate between all the Marzen goodness!  Texas Leaguer - More carbonated with a strong malty flavor.  Altstadt - subtle, bready and toasty flavor.  Spaten -  A little darker in color than the rest, always a classic.   Bell’s - Smoothest and cleanest of the four, but a much more muted flavor profile.
