Before the temperatures cool, the leaves fall, and football teams are in mid-year form, Ohio’s Oktoberfest marks the beginning of the fall craft beer season. Brew masters throughout the Midwest are busy refining this year’s collection of amber-red ales.
For the team at RivalryBrews.com, it kicks off the beginning of a strong sales and delivery period. In the firm’s 2021 season, the online craft beer delivery site again hit it’s highest traffic and sales cycle during the months of September & October. The platform saw a 710% traffic increase from the prior months, and began what was a fast-paced timeline of heavy craft beer coming in, and boxes of Ohio’s best Oktoberfest beer shipping out.
2021 was even bigger than 2020, and 2022 looks to be the best Oktoberfest box yet because this year will include delicious beer pairing snacks including Beer Cheese Pretzels, Jalapeno Beef Sticks, Beer Nuts Peanuts, and a sharp autumn mustard!
RB has partnered with Baskets Galore to bring you not only delicious beers, but tasty snacks that pair great with these top Oktoberfest and Pumpkin beers.

The company is busy preparing for the 2022 Oktoberfest run, and currently they are accepting pre-orders for their collection of Ohio’s Best Oktoberfest & Snacks beers boxes. The custom collection is neatly packaged with fresh product, properly sealed and protected, and available to be direct shipped to fulfill online orders.
The 2022 Oktoberfest Collection includes Ohio craft beers from Rivalry Brews' select partners, including several “top rated” breweries. The scheduled line-up for this year’s craft beer boxes include:

- Boo Thang - Saucy Brew Works

The Oktoberfest collection is a great addition to an upcoming football tailgate party, as a birthday or special occasion gift, or just a way to send “a bit of back home” to a former buckeye state resident who has since relocated. Esker expects this year’s sales to be significantly strong, and encourages craft beer fans to submit requests early. Orders received by Sept 12, should see their beer arrive starting the week of Sept 19.
It’s Tradition - “Bavaria, Bands, and Brews”
Origins of the Oktoberfest season date back several hundred years in Munich, Bavaria, according to beerconnoisseur.com. The event began originally on October 12, 1810 as a festival honoring the marriage of Kronprinz Ludwig to Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen. The following year, the event was moved up several weeks to allow for more optimal weather conditions.
The 16-day celebration is highlighted by civic and community gatherings, German-heritage music, and tapping of the much anticipated Oktoberfest beer. Traditionally speaking, the dark-colored lagers were brewed in March to about 5.5 – 6% ABV, and slowly seasoned during the summer months to allow the rich malt flavor to develop. Today’s brews often carry a golden color, with each Ohio brew master crafting their own unique flavor.
