Since April this year, the Oktoberfest in Blumenau has defined Spaten beer as the official label of the party, the largest in Brazil of its kind and the second largest Oktober in the world — second only to the original, in Munich (Germany).
The novelty now is that the Munich brand will be joined by another 13 special beer labels, including styles from the North American Goose Island, the Argentinean Patagonia, the Belgian Hoegaarden and the Brazilian Colorado.
From Patagonia, for example, comes the traditional amber lager and a dark lager harder to find outside the brand’s bars. There is also the refreshing Colorado Ribeirão Lager, with orange in the formula, and the classic Hoegaarden, the mother of witbiers.
In common, they all belong to the Ambev portfolio, including Spaten itself, which is one of the six official breweries of Munich’s Oktoberfest, alongside Paulaner, Augustiner, Hofbräu, Hacker Pschorr and Lowenbrau.
After two years absent due to the pandemic, Oktoberfest takes place again in Blumenau, the city that held the first party in 1984. This edition will be the first with Spaten and its traditional munich helles as the main beer of the event. To have the beer at the party, Ambev won a bid with a proposal of R$ 2.5 million.
Check out all the styles that will be at the party below:
