Just had a bottle of the Lion's Oktoberfest and I was pleased with it. Definitely worth picking up if you want a good session O'fest without spending a lot of cash.

Are they still having the shuttles? Doesn't say anything about them on the Lion site.

My understanding is the shuttles will be running. You can double check by e-Mailing info@lionbrewery.com and asking. They don't seem to update their site very often.
