Floor Malted Munich malt, Pilsner malt, Vienna malt, Melanoidin malt, Cara Bohemian, Tradition hops, German Lager yeast.
Premium German ingredients in this namesake of the Oktoberfest celebration, gives the Marzen its beautiful amber color and rich malty backbone that makes it so easy to drink. A bigger version of our Festbier, the malty palate and finish do not seem sweet, but balanced with just the right amount of hops. The color and malty complexity make this a fall favorite for many looking to start out the Autumn season with some festive beer activities.
As the name suggests, brewed as a stronger “March beer” in March and lagered in cold caves over the summer. Early versions were dark brown, and in Austria the name implied a strength band (14 °P) rather than a style. The German amber lager version (in the Viennese style of the time) was first served at Oktoberfest in 1872, a tradition that lasted until 1990 when the golden Festbier was adopted as the standard festival beer.
