The pairing menu includes:

  • German beef roulade paired with Spaten Oktoberfest, a traditional Oktoberfest lager, slowly aged over the summer months to create an amber-colored beer with a tall, creamy collar, complete with a pleasant sweetness, lightly bitter floral and earthy hops and a dry finish.
  • Black forest cake paired with Spaten Optimator, a dark traditional dopplebock-style beer that has a sweet, bready aroma with hints of dark fruit. The taste has caramel notes and a slightly bitter finish.
