The Sprecher Oktoberfest is perfect to pair with this rich menu. Clean and balanced, with a velvety mouth-feel and a lavish, creamy head, this medium-brown lager delivers traditional caramel-malt sweetness followed by crisp, nutty notes and a lingering bitterness.
The earlier in advance you make the black forest cake, the better. The cake, soaked in brandy, improves in flavor the longer it sits. For step-by-step photo instructions, see our gallery »
