HISTORY

Classic Märzen, brewed here. Many years ago, when there were no refrigeration systems like today’s, breweries in northern Europe could not produce beer after March. It was illegal. The heat turned the fermentation tanks into bacteria magnets which could damage the beer. So the last batch was brewed in March, and to keep the beers fresh, brewers stored them in barrels, in caves or basements filled with ice. When the summer was over, and it was safe to resume brewing, the brewers had to empty their kegs to make room for the new beers. During September and October, March beer was bottled with an intense and malty taste, but also very balanced. This type of beer was known as Marzenbier, or simply Märzen, which in German means “March”. Long live the beer!
