RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR)—You no longer have to choose between a having a milkshake or a beer with your burger this Oktoberfest.

For a limited time you can get a beer-spiked milkshake at Red Robin; if you’re 21 and up of course.

The adult treat is made with creamy soft serve ice cream, Samuel Adams® Oktoberfest draft, vanilla and caramel. 

“Nothing says Oktoberfest better than a beer, so I incorporated the fun spirit of Red Robin into this innovative milkshake,” said Donna Ruch, master mixologist with Red Robin.

Click your German-loving heels together with excitement because there is also an Oktoberfest burger to accompany your shake.

A quick check at local Red Robins confirmed that these are available in Richmond. The employee CBS 6 spoke with said “It’s very delicious,” and confirmed that she had indeed, tried a couple.

Supplies are limited, and the official press release said that the beverage will be served either until ingredients are tapped out, or until November 11.
