Maple Märzen

Maple Märzen

Lager Brewed with Maple Syrup
Seasonal: Fall

Our Maple Märzen is a great fall beer offering highlighting local products. Märzen beers were traditionally brewed in March (März) while the weather was still cool and brewing was practical. The beer would be lagered through the summer and served in the fall. Fall festivals including Oktoberfest proved to be a great time to enjoy these well-aged and complex beers which were also crisp and refreshing.

Maple Märzen blends traditional German malts and hops with local maple syrup. The result is a rich and toasty malt flavor with a strong maple character. The German Noble hops lend a subtle balancing spice to the beer but play second fiddle to the malt/maple profile. German lager yeast helps the Märzen stay crisp and clean tasting, letting the other ingredients shine through. This is a traditional lager style with an added Northwoods twist, making it a welcome addition to a sunny but cool autumn day or at any campfire.

Castle Danger Brewery donates a portion of the total sales of Maple Märzen to the Superior Hiking Trail Association.

The Superior Hiking Trail Association (SHTA) is the nonprofit behind Minnesota’s premier long-distance trail, the Superior Hiking Trail, which features more than 300 miles of breathtaking views of Lake Superior, waterfalls, and the beautiful Northwoods. We are honored to serve as stewards of this North Shore treasure by managing, maintaining, and promoting the Trail for all to enjoy.
