Beer Release: Märzen @ Blue Stallion Brewing Co. | Lexington | Kentucky | United States

Why wait until April Fool’s Day to release a seasonal beer whose name literally translates to “March” in German? Why not?

We’ll be tapping this seasonal specialty on Wednesday April 1st. Ellos on Broadway will be here at 5pm cooking up some delicious food. Then live music from Warren Byrom and Robby Cosenza starts at 8pm!

The beautiful copper color reflects the caramel and pilsner malt in this seasonal brew. Märzen, also known as an Oktoberfest-style beer, originated for the celebration of King Ludwig I wedding in 1810 and has been a Bavaria tradition ever since. The Märzen/Oktoberfest style beer which is served during the celebration is often brewed in the spring and held cold over the summer to be tapped in spectacular fashion at the beginning of Oktoberfest in Munich. Our take on the style is slightly bitter with a pale head and is served in both liter and half-liter sizes.
