Bräuhaus Dörflis Märzen

Bräuhaus Dörflis Märzen is a rich malty brew with fair hopping, making for a lovely semi-dry finish. It is brewed by the small communal brewery in the village of Dörflis in Lower Franconia but I sampled it at the Genussfestival 2024 in Ebern.

O-Bräu Märzen (Kaiserhof)

O-Bräu Märzen is brewed by Thomas Kaiser at the mother Kaiserhof brewery. It's a true to style richly malty brew with some spice in the nose and palate and a lingering semi-dry semi-bitter finish. The O refers to the brewer's cat, Oskar.

St. Georgen-Bräu Gold Märzen

St. Georgen-Bräu Gold Märzen is a classic Franconian Märzen with a deep amber hue, rich malty nose and palate tinged with caramel and Spalter hops. The lingering finish is semi-dry and bittersweet.

Glenk Festbier

After some years being contract brewed by Stöckel in Hintergereuth, it appears Glenk has shifted to a closer contract brewer in neighbor Becher-Bräu. This Festbier is a fair example of the style with a rich amber hue and balanced malt palate.

Bayer Bräu Raubritter

Bayer Bräu Raubritter is richly malty Märzen with a nice spicy character in the dry for the style palate. This brewery closed in 2011 but they have their beer contract-brewed at Arnsteinter.

Greifenklau Laurenzi Märzen

Greifenklau Laurenzi Märzen is a richly malty brew with a nice spicy element to both the nose and palate. The lingering finish just dry enough to invite another.

Drei Kronen Kerwabier (Märzen)

Drei Kronen Kerwa Märzen is an unfiltered amber Märzen with a malty palate and some grainy elements. Hops come out in the finish, drying it out nicely.

Veldensteiner Frühlings Märzen

Veldensteiner Frühlings is a rich malty typical of the style with a signature spicy element and a hint of roast before the lingering, semi-dry, semi-bitter finish.
