History & Style

Märzen is a traditional German lager style that takes its name from the month of March when it was historically brewed. The beer would then be lagered in cellars through the summer and then released for Oktoberfest celebrations.

Tasting Notes

Farm Table Marzen has a bready, biscuity malt backbone, with a firm hop presence that lends balancing bitterness. An ultra-clean lager finish completes the package in this highly drinkable beer.

Food Pairings

Brined & crispy grilled pork chops, roast root vegetables (especially parsnips), macaroni & cheese with grilled ham & buttered breadcrumbs, Oka or Havarti cheeses.
