Tap Handle #336: Hacker-Pschorr - Oktoberfest

It's hard to believe that it's been a week since my last post. Sometimes life has a way of mucking up the best intentions and plans. So I'm trying to slip in a tap that I don't have to do research on. This beautiful tap has some really fantastic detail, and is quite popular. Like the other Hacker-Pschorr tap, the Maibock, this one is expensive too. It has a nickname that I'll not divulge here in public.

According to one source, this handle was made expressly for Hacker-Pschorr in time for the 2011 Munich Oktoberfest. The picture to the right is of the 2011 Hacker-Pschorr Oktoberfest Girl that it was modeled after. The beer hall in the background is from the Hacker-Pschorr Beer Pavilion in Munich Germany during the 2011 Beer Festival.

Hacker-Pschorr Oktoberfest has two versions, a lager and a Marzen. I'll cover the Marzen since it's the more available. It uses Bavarian barley slow roasted and caramelized to a rich, red amber color, combined with the purest spring waters from the Alps, exclusive yeast, and the finest Hallertau hops. Weighted average on is 3.38 out of 5.
