General description

Märzen was traditionally the last beer brewed in Bavaria before the brewers ordered a mandatory summer break. It is a dark blond beer in which the malts play a leading role. The beer contained a little more alcohol because of course it had to stay good in the warm summer. When the brewing season arrived again, the remaining supply of Märzen soldier was made at a big folk festival. We still know that party as Oktoberfest. In 1841, Märzen became oktoberfest’s official beer. It remained so until the 1970s.
