When Carnival Celebration starts sailing next month, guests will be able to “cheers” to her fall arrival with an all-new Oktoberfest-inspired seasonal beer, brewed right on board.
Carnival Celebration Brew Master Michael Deichstetter just finished the first batch, a type of beer known as a Festbier – which is popular during Oktoberfest. Carnival’s brew team describes the beer as a modern take on a traditional German lager, light-bodied and golden in color, with notes of melon and strawberry and a clean finish.
Deichstetter, who has been brewing beer for more than 15 years, says his team is planning more special brews to serve on board Carnival Celebration. The team will also brew Carnival’s other exclusive and popular beer offerings already available fleetwide, including the ThirstyFrog Caribbean Wheat, the new ParchedPig Beach Lager, the Carnival Birthday Beer and several other popular flavors.
Celebration is now Carnival’s fifth ship to have its own brewery on board. Carnival Celebration debuts in Miami on Nov. 21 and will launch seven and eight-day cruises to the Eastern and Western Caribbean.
