Oktoberfest bridges September’s transition of seasons, innately triggers a preference for the bolder malt profile of fall beers, and inspired our Marzen, Same Time Next Year.
Originally released in connection with the launch of our “What’s New?” R&D program, this Marzen notched a special place in our brewery’s history – the first beer to medal (2019 US Open Beer Championship) before full market release. Such a strong and unique response justified progression from pilot program beer to full production seasonal release.
Same Time Next Year’s foundation is its malt bill – dominated by German Vienna malt, which provides a medium body with touch of malt sweetness but complimented with notes of biscuit and a hint of caramel provided by Caramunich malt. Although hops take a back seat in this malt forward beer, Liberty hops add balance and a restrained bitterness to round out the overall Oktoberfest experience.
Enjoy our award winning Marzen style Oktoberfest September through October. Once it’s gone, you won’t find it pouring until the same time next year.
