Summit’s latest effort in the Unchained Series is a German-influenced offering from brewer Nate Siats. The beer pours with an amber coloration and a small amount of slightly off-white head. This effort has a malty, slightly biting initial mouthfeel. This set of flavors opens up to a sweeter overall flavoring. Rather than beat imbibers with the sweet side, a significant grain and hop side freshens up palettes.
The beer’s ABV is perfect, ensuring that an individual can put away a few Fest Biers before their session ceases. This beer would be perfectly married to sausage, pizza, and even more typical bar food – this is a very approachable, everyman type of beer. If you want to expand your horizons while still having a beer in a familiar style, Summit’s Fest Bier should be a no brainer. The beer is able to have a cohesive flavor from beginning to end, ensuring that one will want to come back time and time again.
The Fest Bier is available in 6-packs, and will be available for a limited time. Visit the Summit website for more information about the brewery’s year-round and seasonal efforts.
