Märzen, which means "March" in German, is a classic German beer style created before the invention of refrigeration. Back then, brewers weren't able to brew lagers during the summer months the temperatures were too high for the lager yeast to ferment properly. So in March, brewers would stockpile beer which was cellared in cold, dark caves during the summer. In October, when temperatures had cooled, and it was time to brew again the remaining beer was pulled from the caves and enjoyed by the towns people in a celebration we now call Oktoberfest.

Russell Märzen is copper-coloured lager which rich, toasted malt aroma balanced by the clean bitterness of German Hops and distinct noble hop aroma.

Food Pairing: Perfect for paring with roasted meats and harvest vegetables.
