Marzen / Oktoberfest

Before refrigeration, beer brewing typically stopped in March (Marz in German) and the beer was stored and drunk throughout the spring and summer months. At the end of the warmer months the remainder of the beer was consumed during Oktoberfest.

Ranging in color from gold to a deep red, the Vienna and Munich malts give the beer a toasty malt sweetness. Noble hops are used, giving a subtle herbal and floral taste and aroma, with mild hop bitterness. ABV can range from 5-7%.

Best served cool, at 46-54 degrees, and in a pint glass or beer mug.

This Bavarian-style Oktoberfest Bier is brewed with the finest German ingredients in accordance with the Reinheistgebot or German Purity Law. This malty and crisp lager is one of the few that remain true to the Fest Biers of old. “Es ist nicht normal.” (Description provided by company)
