Fat Tuesday comes around in February each year. And, as a homebrewer, you may be in the mood for something other than a hurricane. If so, try making these clones of Louisiana-based beers from Abita and Dixie.
All the Munich breweries prepare an Oktoberfest for the celebration. The Hofbräuhaus, which means “Royal Court Brewery,” is probably the most famous of the city’s breweries. In fact, the Hofbräuhaus may be the most famous brewery, beer garden and beer hall in the world.
Hofbräuhaus Oktoberfest has a creamy, tight, off-white head and a luscious amber color. The nose is aromatic malt the palate is smooth, with intense malt and nutty, bread-like nuances. The finish is one of semi-sweet malt.
