Pilseners and pretzels
Make your own German beers at IncrediBREW’s Oktoberfest

10/09/14



 It wouldn’t be Oktoberfest without hefeweizens, pilseners, märzens and German pretzels. Attendees at IncrediBREW’s annual autumn brew fest get to brew their own German beers from scratch and sample traditional German baked goods.

“From the beer side of it, we have some really great German-style beers that we’ve perfected over the years,” IncrediBREW owner Dave Williams said. “We make a big effort to offer the people just a true German experience without having to buy an airline ticket.”
That starts with using German malts and hops and brewing the beers in the authentic German tradition.
IncrediBREW’s Oktoberfest beer recipe is one of its top sellers year round, and Williams said that Germans have said his hefeweizen recipe “is the real deal.”
Oktoberfest is the most popular seasonal brew fest at IncrediBREW, so Williams has started offering two different brewing days to make sure everyone who wants to can get in. This year’s Oktoberfest brew fests will be on Wednesday, Oct. 15, at 6 p.m., and Thursday, Oct. 16, at 6 p.m.
“The brew fests are events where people come in and brew with a group,” he said. “Anybody can come in without any knowledge at all — they don’t have to know about hops or anything. We’re there to walk them through.”
Attendees break up into brewing groups and get step-by-step instructions on how to brew a certain type of beer. Since brewing takes a little over two hours, Oktoberfest guests get to sample authentic German pretzels, breads and treats from German John’s Bakery in Hillsborough.
“We’re trying to keep the heavy Oktoberfest theme as much as we can here,” Williams said. “It’s a neat little tie-in because he’s just about the only person around here that does authentic German pretzels.”
German John’s Bakery has partnered with IncrediBREW’s Oktoberfest brew fest for over a decade now, Williams said. 
Brew fest attendees return after two weeks to bottle and take home their beers, and the Oktoberfest brew fest is also the only event where attendees can pick up goodies along with their beer. German John’s Bakery will take orders on the evening of the brew fest and come back on bottling day.
“What we try to do is we try to tie in local businesses and we try to incorporate them into events,” Williams said.
