This beer goes by many names: Aletoberfest, Mocktoberfest, Fauxtoberfest, ALToberfest. An ale version of a Marzen-style Oktoberfest as seen brewed by Ryan and Judi Schenian in Chop & Brew – Episode 13: Brewing Aletoberfest. Thanks to Ryan and Judi for sharing this recipe with the people! This is a quick-turning beer using ale yeast to ferment so there’s still time to get yours in before the fall festival season is over.
