Louisiana’s two newest breweries are releasing special beers this month with special events. 40 Arpent Brewing Co. is providing the house beer for the Deutsches Haus' Oktoberfest.

“When I moved to New Orleans in July 2000, the first event I went to was the Deutsches Haus Oktoberfest," says head brewer Michael Naquin. "Around when I decided it was time to open a brewery, we were at the last fest on Galvez (Street) and I thought, 'Why doesn't the Haus have its own beer for the fest?'”

Three years later, Naquin produced the beer for Deutsches Haus' Oktoberfest. Deutsches Haus Fest Bier is a Munich-style Oktoberfest beer, and it is slightly different from a traditional marzen. It has 5.8 percent alcohol by volume (ABV), and Naquin used Hallertau, Tradition and Tettnang hops for a balanced hop profile and Southern German Lager Yeast. "This is truly my favorite to brew and is a fantastic lager,” Naquin says.

Gnarly Barley Brewing Co. is rolling out the third beer in its portfolio, Korova Milk Porter, a cold-fermented Baltic oatmeal milk porter with 6.4 percent ABV.

“We are very excited about the release because this is a beer we really enjoy," says Gnarly Barley co-founder Cari Caramonta. "It will be our third commercially released beer, just in time for the fall weather. The Korova Milk Porter was (head brewer) Zac (Caramonta's) first homebrew recipe that he developed completely on his own. It was also the first one he submitted to a contest and brought to a public beer festival.”

The beer debuts at the brewery’s Gnarly Barley Q party on Oct. 18, featuring food, beer and music. After that, Caramonta says they will sell the beer on the Northshore and in Baton Rouge and New Orleans.
