Copper Legend Octoberfest
Jack’s Abby Craft Lagers (Framingham, MA)
First of all, let’s be sure to never confuse or conflate Octoberfest beers with pumpkin selections.
I don’t say that to trash the latter, but rather to highlight the integrity that beers like Copper Legend by Jack’s Abby offer.
In this case, the selection’s a significantly stiff and noble brew that’s mildly autumnal, all while being slightly (dare I say ideally) bitter with the sort of subtle hops perfect for extensive day-drinking leading up to the tundra.
Lucky for you, these copper bullets (5.7% ABV, BTW) come in 12-packs.
