Barrel House Z FESTBIER




Not sure who Donny Is? However Donny lives in Boston and is under the impression that all craft beer is trash.

He has a few buddies that always push craft IPAs on him. He tried a couple. They tasted like pine trees. Not his thing.  

Last week Donny was invited to an Oktoberfest. They’ll have German beer, not any of that craft crap, he thought.

And there’s gonna be sausages, giant pretzels, and the chance to drink out of a boot.





Sounded like a killer party to him. He was having a hell of a time at the fest, eating and dancing, when one of his buds brought him a beer.

After just one sip he stopped and thanked his friend.



“This beer is wicked awesome, what is it?”

“It’s Barrel House Z’s Festbier, it’s a craft beer made for Oktoberfest.”


“It’s a craf–”

“No, I heard what you said, but is Barrel House Z ‘craft’?”

“Yeah man, it’s wicked right?”

“Yeah, but, this can’t be craft, it doesn’t taste like fruit or pine trees!”

“Hahaha, man this is as craft as it gets, a small batch beer from a local brewery that really cares about quality.”



Craft beer can taste like beer, but when made by indie brewers it tastes like really good beer, wow!

A light went on in Donny’s head.

He would never think of beer the same again. Barrel House Z, the brewery that changed his mind about craft. 





Hazy amber with a reddish hue. Minimal creamy head.



Sweet with a mild fruity citrus base, hints of clove and evergreen.


Flavor Notes:

  • Honey
  • Citrus/Orange
  • Malt
  • Mild Hops
  • Clove
  • Pine



Malty and smooth with notes of honey, citrus and clove producing a clean crisp refreshing finish.
