Harriet Brewing, a relative old-timer in Minneapolis's burgeoning microbrewery scene, will be releasing an Oktoberfest selection at its tap room Thursday.

Harriet offered its first samples to friends and media Tuesday night, and we're happy to report that it doesn't disappoint. It's easily a contender for their best selection yet, which is a high compliment to a brewery that has yet to produce a bad beer.

Keeping in the traditional German style, the Märzan/Oktoberfest is heavy on the toasted malts, with a subtly hoppy aftertaste. According to Harriet, the initial rich taste comes from a blend of Vienna, Munich, and Pilsner malts.

Harriet will be serving the Oktoberfest at its taproom at 3036 Minnehaha Ave. beginning tomorrow. The brewery will also be releasing a couple more new taps on September 29 at "Rauchfest 2012," a concert held outside the taproom featuring the Big Wu, the Premiums, and more.
