What do collaboration beers make you think of? Brooklyn and Schneider? BrewDog and Stone? Well, there are some brewers newly jumping on the bandwagon—from Munich.
To celebrate the 200th anniversary of the Oktoberfest, a couple of breweries you might have heard of are getting together to knock up a brew. Well, not just a couple. How about Augustiner and Löwenbräu and Spaten and Hacker-Pschorr and Hofbräu and Paulaner?
All six big Munich breweries are collaborating on a special beer to be sold exclusively in the "historical tent" at this year's festival. It's a darker than normal Festbier of about 6% abv. Not a single drop will be available anywhere else.
I wonder if there will be golden tickets.
