While we tend to think of Oktoberfest as the world’s biggest beer festival, to Goa, it’s not different.
Unfortunately due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there might be less events to this year’s Oktoberfest festival. But, that doesn’t mean that we need to forgo fall altogether.
Here we bring you 5 brews to celebrate the spirit of Oktoberfest in Goa.
Peoples Lager (MRP 70)
Goa Brewing Co (GBC) new addition Peoples lager made locally in all its aspects, using traditional ukdo rice (boiled rice) from the fields of Goa.

An unique, authentic Belgian wheat beer with a brewing tradition dating back to 1445, Hoegaarden is totally different by nature. Hoegaarden has a unique and extremely
complex brewing process involving orange peels and coriander. The beer is first topfermented and then bottle-conditioned, resulting in a distinctive cloudy-white appearance and refreshing taste experience. Consumers in over 70 countries in the world enjoy Hoegaarden’s refreshing nature.

Maka Di Shandy (MRP 69)
A lager and lemonade mix. Shandy originated in Britain in the 1950s, as a mix of beer and ginger ale called “Shandygaff” shortened to “Shandy”.While a variety of similar or close enough combination was experimented with, an equal mix of mainly lager beer with natural sparkling lemonade made the perfect shandy.
