The season is short, so hoist a stein of our malty sweet craft beer while it's available
Sprecher Brewery celebrates the transition from summer into autumn with its seasonal Oktoberfest craft beer, now available in cans and on tap.
A tapping of Oktoberfest will take place at Sprecher Brewery, 701 W. Glendale Ave in Glendale, from 3 pm – 7 pm on Thursday, August 25. The tapping will feature special pricing of $5 for half liters and $9 for liters, with $7 half liters and $11 liters thereafter. Attendees of the tapping can also enter to win a growler of Oktoberfest.
Cans of Oktoberfest can be found at the Glendale brewery and in the Greater Milwaukee area, including Otto’s, Discount Liquor, Sendik’s, Total Wine & More and additional stores.
This copper-orange lager features toasted and caramel malts with a slight fruity nose, with a creamy and lean mouthfeel. Savoring its malty sweetness, mild hop spiciness and clean finish will help you appreciate fall’s splendors.

Sprecher rolled out a new redesign and can packaging this year, with cans of beer providing increased convenience, freshness and sustainability. Sprecher will also be available on tap in bars, restaurants and in the brewery taproom.
The new can line accompanies a brand refresh for Sprecher's line of craft beer, including new can art, labels, tap handles and a website redesign. In addition, Sprecher has debuted and trademarked the slogan #BrewGoodThings, which reflects the brewery's natural and locally-sourced Wisconsin ingredients and materials, commitment to quality process and investment in the talented workforce and local community.
This fall, Sprecher is also launching a nonprofit partnership program to host events and help raise funds for qualifying programs while enjoying craft beverages at the brewery’s Glendale taproom.
In the new Brew Good Things/Do Good Things program, Sprecher is offering free hosting space and donating $1 per pint to nonprofit organizations. Other fundraising opportunities will be offered including silent auction donations from Sprecher, as well as social and website event promotions to raise awareness of the organization’s causes.
