Details

We look forward to the slew of Oktoberfest beers here at Beer Hawk; the rich, warming Märzen style lager is the perfect partner for the darkening winter evenings. Märzen means March, and it was traditionally applied to beers brewed in this month with the last of the previous year’s hops. However, it has since become associated with Munich’s world famous beer festival. Märzens tend to showcase malts brilliantly, with a caramel and toasty notes with little or no hops. Goose Island’s version is true to the style, perhaps a little hoppier, with notes of toffee and burnt sugar, plus a subtle taste of dried apricots. The Hallertau hops balance the malt with an earthy bitterness. Worth waiting all year for.

Brewery Info

Great breweries start with a clear vision. Founder John Hall’s was to bring the best of European beer styles to Chicago. Since its modest beginnings in a brewpub in 1988, Goose Island went on to make some of America’s greatest beer, including Goose IPA that won medals not just once, but six times at the Great American Beer Festival.
