Scandal Wrath Märzen Bock
Märzen is a style that was born in Bavaria. As summer approached the brewing halted, they would store the Spring brew for the Fall and crack it open for Oktoberfest. Our Marzen Bock scandalously kicks it up a notch to 8% alc./vol. with the signature maltiness still intact. Enjoy this twist on a classic before the wrath you feel stems from missing out!
Oktoberfest is a German festival dating from 1810, and Oktoberfestbiers are the beers that have been served at the festival since 1818, and are supplied by 6 breweries: Spaten, Lowenbrau, Augustiner, Hofbrau, Paulaner and Hacker-Pschorr.Traditionally Oktoberfestbiers were the lagers of around 5.5 to 6 abv called Marzen - brewed in March and allowed to ferment slowly during the summer months.Originally these would have been dark lagers, but from 1872 a strong March brewed version of an amber-red Vienna lager made by Josef Sedlmayr became the favourite Oktoberfestbier.
