48 – Session Märzen

Oktoberfest didn’t really happen for many of us this year, so why not bring a little bit of that celebratory spirit into your homes regardless. Märzens are crisp refreshing amber lagers with a easy dry biscuity finish, and go perfect at this time of year. Mike decided to do a session version of this famous yearly style as well as dipping his toes into the complex world of decoction mashes!

We tried very hard but couldn’t find any Märzens to try, and so ended up going on an impromptu “journey”. In this tasty meander we tried:

Warka – “Strong” – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warka_Brewery
Eight Arch – Little Dragon – https://www.8archbrewing.co.uk/
Steam Town – “Disco Town” – https://www.steamtownbrewco.co.uk/
Triple fff – “Gilbert White” – https://www.triplefff.com/

There are reasons for all of these, trust us, but you’re gonna have to listen to the episode to find out why!
