Gordon Biersch also celebrates Oktoberfest with a seasonal menu. Last year, it kicked off the event with live music and free beer tastings. This year, Gordon Biersch is keeping things under wraps but is likely to include favorites like Festbier which is a combination of dark roasted Munich malt and pilsner malt giving the beer a very rich, hoppy flavor. Stop in to try this flavor or one of the other flavors on the Oktoberfest menu and try the food sampler while you’re at it.
