MärzenOktoberfest Lager • 5.5% • Farm Table Series
Märzen is Beau’s multi-award-winning traditional Oktoberfest beer. This harvest-moon-coloured lager with a bready aroma has just the right amount of hops to balance the biscuity Munich malt flavour.
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.
Beau’s first brewed Märzen under the banner of Night Märzen in 2008. Today the beer is a returning seasonal favourite, brewed just in time for Beau’s Oktoberfest, which takes place every September in Vankleek Hill, Ontario. Fun fact: Märzen’s label artwork is inspired by the sights and sounds of Oktoberfest, and even features a moon referencing the original Night Märzen artwork.
Beau’s Farm Table Series beers are brewed true to style, and easy to enjoy. Their recipes showcase our favourite classic or emerging beer styles from around the world.
Märzen pours clear copper with a white foam. It has a bready aroma, a biscuity malt flavour, and a firm hop presence that lends balancing bitterness. An ultra-clean lager finish completes the package in this highly drinkable beer.
Brined & crispy grilled pork chops, roast root vegetables (especially parsnips), macaroni & cheese with grilled ham & buttered breadcrumbs, Oka or Havarti cheeses.
