Marzen = March

March 15th, 2020

It’s almost Spring, so it’s time to brew a Marzen! Originating in Germany, this style was traditionally brewed in the spring (“Marzen” meaning “March”) and aged, or lagered, throughout the summer. A stronger version was served at early Oktoberfest celebrations and became known as Oktoberfest. Who’s got one in the fermenter? If you’re looking for a recipe, here’s one idea for you… Prost!
