Gather round, youngsters, and we’ll tell you of a time before refrigeration, before glycol-cooled tanks kept yeast from producing estery off-flavors, before walk-in coolers and plug-in kegerators, when lager beers had to be made during the fall and winter. During those days in Munich, crafty brewers made a strong Vienna lager called Märzen, designed to be drunk over the summer months until the weather got cool and we could brew again. October was the time to party, after the harvest was done, and drink the rest of the March (Märzen) beer and celebrate the arrival of fresh batches of lager.
