Karl Strauss, San Diego’s longest continuously operating post-Prohibition brewing company, recently released its seasonal Oktoberfest beer at its Carlsbad brewpub. Brewmaster Paul Segura made the announcement.

The German-style Märzen lager, which has a 5.0% ABV and a golden amber color, is available on draft at the brewpub at 5801 Armada Drive adjacent to the Grand Pacific Palisades Resort, as well as at several bars and restaurants throughout North County.

Six packs of 12-oz. Oktoberfest bottles are available at the brewpub and at retail locations such as 7-Eleven, Costco, CVS, Ralphs, Sprouts and Vons. For a store finder, visit www.karlstrauss.com/find-karl/.

“In a world of ever-changing beer styles, our Oktoberfest stands as a timeless classic — an original masterpiece that pays homage to the heart and soul of this Bavarian brewing tradition,” Segura said. “No doubt, this is one that both our team and our fans get most excited for each year.”

The official 2023 Oktoberfest celebration in Germany takes place from Sept. 16 to Oct. 3. This year marks the 188th festival. Karl Strauss’s Oktoberfest beer uses a blend of Vienna and Munich hops, along with Perle hops imported from the Hallertau region of Germany. It has toasted malt flavors, nutty undertones, and a crisp, clean finish.

In addition to traditional pints, Karl Strauss brewpubs is offering an Oktoberfest stein-and-fill promotion for $15. Refills of Oktoberfest or any Karl Strauss core beer in the newly-designed take-home stein are just $6. The beer will be available through Oct. 31.

Karl Strauss released its first version of an Oktoberfest beer “Blonde Bavarian Oktoberfest Beer” in 1989, the same year the brewery was founded. Blonde Bavarian was part of Karl Strauss’s first Oktoberfest celebration at the brewery’s original location on Columbia Street in Downtown San Diego.

On July 30, it was announced that Karl Strauss was voted as one of San Diego’s Best Craft Breweries in The San Diego Union-Tribune’s 2023 Readers Poll. Only 10 made the list. A Karl Strauss beer garden in San Marcos is expected to open in September. Karl Strauss also has brewpubs in 4S Ranch and Sorrento Mesa.
