Brewed with a combination of Vienna, Munich and Carapils malts, Weeping Radish’s Fest Bier is a traditional Oktoberfest style lager which was first brewed for the brewery’s Fall Celebration in 1987. The Radish hops it up with both German Northern Brewer malts for their floral characteristics and German Hallertau to add a bit of hop bitterness. Immediately note a pleasant floral hop nose that is slightly buttery in the background. We found this Oktoberfest clean, offering a slightly toasty malt character and crisp hop finish. Look for a medium-bodied brew with a big spicy hop flavor.
In 1986 one of the largest and most unique attractions in North Carolina's Outer Banks was born. The Weeping Radish Brewery and Bavarian Restaurant was the vision of owner Uli Bennewitz.

From the beer garden exterior to the traditional clock tower, it transports you to a quaint Bavarian village. A visit to this truly unique attraction would not be complete without taking the tour of the on-site brewery and the new organic farm that will make Weeping Radish the East Coast’s first eco-brewery.

There’s no doubt that Weeping Radish had been well received by the critics. Parade Magazine ran an article listing the Weeping Radish Golden Lager as one of the 10 Hot American Brews. Then the Beverage Testing Institute confirmed it - they brew some good beer. They awarded the Black Radish and Fest Amber Silver Medal Awards. In fact, the brewery had only submitted 4 beers to the Beverage Testing Institute and were more than just a little excited when they received awards for each one!

Brewing with all natural ingredients, the Weeping Radish Brewery continues in a true German beer making tradition. Following the Reinheitsgebot, or German Purity Law of 1516, only water, malted barley, hops, and yeast are used. There are no additives or preservatives in any of their beers.
