Capital Ale House Anniversary Beer: September

Hard to believe it’s already September.  I mean the year is almost over.  At this point, Capital Ale House has tapped ten different anniversary beers.  Today September 5th, they tap lucky number eleven, or should I say 73,  from Troegs.  Fitting for the time of year, Capital Ale House has acquired number 73 from Troegs’ Scratch Beer Series for this month.

To commemorate the annual German tradition of Oktoberfest, Tröegs unveils Scratch #73 – 2012, an OkTröegerFest, if you will.  This rich, pumpkin-colored lager goes against the grain by boasting a fairly hefty hop presence for the style, giving the flavor a moderate bitter twist while still maintaining the classic malt character that you’ve come to expect from a traditional Fest Bier.  ABV is 5.5% and IBU is 35

Get out and try this beer while you can.
