COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Originally a party to celebrate the wedding of Crown Prince Luitpold I and Princess Theressa of Bavaria in 1810, this fest and beer style have been celebrated since. We brewed this malty beverage in the German brewing tradition (double decoction mashing) and have been lagering this annual brew for the last 4 months and now it is time to release it to your glass. Orange in color, malty to taste and subtle on hops with a clean lager finish.
