It’s lederhosen season and Vancouver’s Red Truck is getting into the spirit with a classic German-style copper lager brewed with all German malt and hops, and using traditional decoction mash brewing technique. “Munich and Vienna malts create a complex sweet and toasty malt foundation that is balanced with spicy Hallertauer hops for a well-rounded beer that’s perfect for the season,” according to the brewery. “Enjoy it with a delicious Truck Stop Schnitzel Sandwich and you’ll be singing Ein Prosit in no time.” Red Truck Oktoberfest Beer is available exclusively in the Truck Stop at Red Truck Beer.
