Get your lederhosen out of lockdown to celebrate Waterloo Brewing's (or the "Company's") (TSX: WBR) sponsorship of Bingemans Oktoberfest Koolhaus. In its fourth year running, the event series is back with a Biergarten stocked with steins of the hyper small batch brew, Waterloo Festbier.

Festbier (5% Alc./Vol.) is a full-bodied lager, brewed in the classic Marzen-style with a touch of Munich malt, delivering bold, sweet flavours, balanced by a noble hop bitterness. Festbier is a smooth, celebratory beer made from the purest ingredients.

Festbier is now available at the Waterloo Brewing Beer Store and coming to LCBO stores in the Waterloo Region mid-September, and Bingemans Oktoberfest this fall.

"Oktoberfest presents us with a unique opportunity to delve into a brewing heritage that has inspired us as a company," Kim Mannerow, Director of Marketing at Waterloo Brewing said. "We celebrate what German brewing has to offer with its precision, cleanliness, balance and drinkability. These are qualities we strive for in every beer we make, and our Waterloo Festbier brings this to the fore."

"Oktoberfest sums up the very best of what beer culture is all about," Mark Bingeman, President of Bingemans said. "We have been in times where we could all do with more cheer and I can't wait to clink glasses with our community, and with our partners, Waterloo Brewing, to celebrate at the Bingemans Oktoberfest Kool Haus Festbier Garten. Prost!"
