served at the modern day Oktoberfest. Originally, the Oktoberfest was held in the middle of October. The brewers created the modern day Oktoberfest beer with a lighter body than Märzen but a more robust, hoppy flavor, resulting in FestBier. The maltiness is created via a combination of dark-roasted Munich malt and pilsner malt, and the hoppy aroma is achieved via the imported Hallertau and Tettnang aroma hops. FestBier is available seasonally from through October.
Situated in the heart of The Promenade Bolingbrook, Gordon Biersch Brewery & Restaurant is a free standing brewery restaurant, featuring main and private dining options, offering fresh, handcrafted beer and premium, made-from-scratch food...all served up in a friendly and fun atmosphere.
