Schubros Brewery from San Ramon, California, is relatively young, but offers a respectable range of year-round and seasonal beers. They brew a good variety and manage to avoid anything that could simply be described as “lager”.
Festbier is a tribute to that famous Bavarian party that any good beer drinker should know. The style is marzen in that it’s German, dark, and malty. Nothing too complex, but that’s really the standard here.
It’s an enjoyable drink. Simple; but a cut above the ubiquitous German beers adhering to the now [seemingly] outdated purity laws. 3/5 stars. Solid, but not remarkable.
