Lone Star Looks To Germany (Austin, TX) – Lone Star Brewing’s newest fall seasonal embraces tradition with a Texas take on a classic style that originated in Cologne, Germany. Brewed in the Hill Country region of Austin and infused with natural peach flavoring to create a distinct take on the style, Lone Star Das Beer Y’all is a 4.8% ABV Kölsch that’s a perfect transition beer as we move from summer to fall.
“As The National Beer of Texas, it’s our responsibility to create unique and inherently Texan beverages, and have as much fun in the process as possible,” said Lone Star Brand Director, Emily Hoyle. “We wanted to bring the hill country experience to every Texans’ home allowing them a taste of escape. The relaxed atmosphere and iconic beauty of this region made for great inspiration, and who doesn’t love a hint of peach.”

Un-Cancelled (Hawley, PA) – More than 200 years ago Bavaria celebrated a wedding which laid the foundation for Munich’s Oktoberfest, a fall harvest tradition that has spread across the world. And over the years that legendary celebration has only been cancelled due to a Napoleonic incursion, Cholera, World War I, World War II, and now COVID-19. But now Wallenpaupack Brewing is ‘un-canceling’ that cancellation with its latest seasonal release.
An almost perfect balance of German malt & Noble hops, Wallenpaupack Oktoberfest is a 5.9% ABV Märzen Lager with a richness that avoids the cloying sweetness that mars many interpretations of the style.
