We leverage the traditional German decoction process to make this popular beer and stay true to form with the ingredients: we use Perle and Saphir hops, very traditional German hops, combined with crystal and caramel malts which add a really nice toasted malt character and a nice deep caramel color.
F.X. Matt, our founder, learned the art of brewing in Germany, so we naturally brew this beer in the same German tradition (passed down through four generations). However, the spelling of “October” is intentional. When he founded our company, F.X. made it a point to only allow English to be spoken at the Brewery. In his honor, we forgo the traditional German spelling for the English spelling!
