Welcome to Dom’s Drafts where we ponder pints and life. In the words of Samuel L. Jackson, “Hang onto your butts”, as we take a ride on the highway of flavor and hopefully avoid Thelma and Louise-ing everything. No promises.
Hacker-Pschorr Oktoberfest Marzen
Today’s Draft is in celebration of Oktoberfest and brought to you courtesy of Beer Tooth Taproom. This beer may have come to me today in a pint glass, but their real home is in a full Litre stein, so just bring your own and try to get them to fill it up! Just tell them it’s basically a crowler fill (it’s an oz more, so woohoo if they can’t do conversions in their head, you get an extra oz!)
Marzen – ABV 5.8%
Marzens are brewed in March, hence the name. They’re a bit darker in color than the lighter “Festbiers” and have caramel flavors, so there is some good flavor ready to be drained into your gullet, preferably 33.814oz at a time. Hell, the glass comes with an ergonomic handle. This beer’s providence is intertwined with mass consumption and lucky for you, it tastes delicious!
Malty and carmel-y, they are the perfect accompaniment to eating massive amounts of chicken and sausage followed by pretzels with hot beer cheese, right before you get up and get pulled into a 20 min EDM version of the Chicken Dance which turns into an epic breakdancing battle where a robotic chicken struts around the room Cock-a-doodle-dooing synthed a-rhythmic beats, when, out of nowhere a leather-bound daddy grabs your hand and pulls you into a metal cage as lasers and fog fill the dancefloor. The hard down-beat of the bass throbs through the multitudes of atoms in your corpus, reverberating through each swing of your arms through the dense atmosphere as the cosmos spirals you through the helix of time back to the royal Theresienwiese of Munich in 1810 astride your galloping stead, muscles rippling through each heave of stride, still gripping and chugging the nectar of Bavaria.
Who is ready for a week-long party!!!!!
