Throwback Brewery's Oma's TributeOma’s Tribute is a light, crisp Schwarzbier that has a rich, dark brown color with beautiful red undertones.  This beer is supremely smooth and easy to drink, with a slight roasty taste and very little hop bitterness.

We like to say “don’t judge a beer by its color”, and this is especially true with Oma’s Tribute. If you don’t think you are a fan of darker beer, we encourage you come in and take the ‘Oma Test’… Close your eyes, take a nice sip of Oma’s, and we bet that you will be blown away by how crisp, clean, and light the mouthfeel is! If you have a friend that you want to ‘convert’ into more of a darker beer lover, then this is a great first beer to try.

Oma’s Tribute was originally brewed as a “one-off” to honor Annette’s Grandma.  People loved it so much that we now brew it all year long. You can read Annette’s tribute to her Grandma here.


The Stats

4.9% Alcohol by Volume (ABV) 30 IBU


We like this beer so much that we drink it with pretty much everything!  But the roasty flavors in this beer tend to play well with grilled, roasted, or blackened meats and veggies. It also pairs well with steak and chocolate.


Oma’s Tribute is available all year long, and can be purchased in kegs and growlers.
