PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The new restaurant Will BYOB, at 1911 East Passyunk Avenue, is a classic French restaurant with a progressive approach to cooking, says general manager Chris Perotti.

“Well, you can think of classic French dishes like confit of duck or riettes, or a Lyonnaise salad, and basically taking that idea and deconstructing it and changing it all around so the same flavors come through, the same idea comes through, but the approach is completely different,” Perotti tells KYW Newsradio.

“Because, really, Oktoberfest starts at the end of August and it runs right up until the beginning of October,” Mullins explains.  “It historically celebrates the harvest and the beginning and the preparation for winter.”

And he says these seasonal beers are unique.

“Oktoberfest beers are Märzen style beer.  They’re copper in color, (with) mild flavor.  There’s not a lot of hops in it, and they average about five to six percent alcohol.”
