Featured Beer #11 – Avery The Kaiser Imperial Oktoberfest Lager

Let’s Go Conquer The World

As discussed last week, and as most of you probably already knew and know, Oktoberfest is still being celebrated in Germany. The celebration will continue officially until October 7th.

Something tells me a select few individuals will keep the party going long after the tents are folded up and trash collection has begun.

People over there like to drink, man.

My hat’s off.

While the Oktoberfest style of beer is not my favorite, I do enjoy them, as they happen to fall under the all encompassing umbrella of beer. An umbrella I’m quite fond of. But, would I choose one over any stout, porter, IPA, or a Rogue of any style?

Probably not.

Until now.

The Kaiser Imperial Oktoberfest from Avery Brewing Company. Great friggin’ beer.

This week we delve into the world of imperials for the first time for VHT. Specifically, it’s Avery The Kaiser Imperial Oktoberfest Lager.

Avery The Kaiser Imperial Oktoberfest Lager

Let’s break down the name; “The Kaiser”, which is a German emperor as an FYI, is one of three different beers in Avery’s Dictator Series. “Imperial” is a style of beer, originating from Russian Imperial Stouts brewed back in the 18th century.

When you drink an imperial, regardless of style, just know the beer is strong. Like piss yourself kind of strong if you’re not careful.

Finally, it’s an “Oktoberfest Lager”; a 9.1% alcohol content lager and the best version of Oktoberfest I’ve ever had. An Oktoberfest I would choose before a stout, porter, or IPA.

Maybe that’s too strong of praise.

Just know, if you like Oktoberfest style beers and can find this one, get it. But remember, I warned you it’s an imperial and if you take that “yeah, whatever, I can hold my alcohol unlike you” attitude, well, leave me a comment after you finish your unplanned load of laundry.

Alright, you could slam one and be ok, but multiple?

Good luck.

Finally, on a side note, the bottle’s description states that The Kaiser once said:

The Kaiser: Give me a woman who loves brew and I will conquer the world.

Kaiser Wilhelm II. He thought he could rule the world if he had a woman who loved beer by his side. What a fool.

While I appreciate this particular Kaiser’s pronouncement of beer as it relates to women and ambition, and I do firmly believe that chicks who enjoy beer are sexy as all hell, what was wrong with that guy?

Conquer the world? You wouldn’t have time with all the arguments and borderline fist-fights you’d be engaged in. You want a woman who enjoys beer, not loves it. You can’t have both people love beer in a relationship. That’s got disaster written all over it:

Kaiser Who Loves Beer: Hey honey, grab your purse and let’s go conquer the world.

Woman Who Loves Beer: Fuck you, asshole. You don’t love me.

Kaiser Who Loves Beer: And here we go again. Perhaps I need to find a woman that merely enjoys beer instead of this raging alcoholic. That sounds nice.

Tension my friends. Pure tension.

So as Oktoberfest begins to wind itself down for another year, try to find The Kaiser Imperial Oktoberfest Lager from Avery Brewing Company and send the festival off the right way. It really is a great beer.

One more aerial shot of Oktoberfest 2012. I’ve got to make it there at some point in my life, right?

Just try to keep the fighting to a minimum, alright overly-ambitious couples?!

But, prost to everyone regardless!

Prost?

Again, look it up.
