Oktoberfest with Max Lager's and Owen Ogletree - Episode 41 - 10/8/16
By Beer Guys Media LLC
Oktoberfest may be over in Munich, but it's on our mind this time of the year. With that in mind, we talked to Max Lager's owner John "JR" Roberts and Brewtopia's Owen Ogletree. Both are experts in the field, and we talked, drank, and learned more about Martzens, Festbiers and all sorts of styles popular this time of the year. Owen just returned to the states from a trip to Munich, and he shares his experiences with us. It's also the weekend of the Great American Beer Festival. We will be there, and so we talked to John about the GABF...and some tips on surviving!
