Boulevard - Bob’s ‘47 Oktoberfest Returns

11 August 2017

As summer draws to a close and the early mornings and late evenings become a bit more crisp, it’s time for one of our most anticipated seasonal beers, Bob’s ’47 Oktoberfest, to return! Released annually since 1993, Bob’s ’47 Oktoberfest will be back in the Greater Kansas City Area on August 14th (draft) and August 15th (six-packs) with other cities in the Midwest to follow in the coming weeks.

A tribute to former George Muehlebach Brewing Company master brewer and early friend and mentor to John McDonald, Bob Werkowitch, Bob’s (as it’s affectionately called around the brewery) is our take on a traditional German-style Marzen/Oktoberfest. To allow Bob’s ’47 adequate lagering time before its fall release, we typically brew the first batches in late May to early June. Following a three week primary fermentation, Bob’s ’47 is crash cooled and lagered at 32 F until packaging. This period of cold maturation allows flavors to mature and meld resulting in an incredibly smooth and delicious fall beer that showcases herbal/woody Vanguard hops against a toasted malt background.
