Tröegs Scratch 112


Brewed by Tröegs Brewing Company
Hershey, Pennsylvania USA
Style: Oktoberfest/Märzen | Ratings: 9 | Alcohol: 5.5%
Autumn is an insanely popular season for beer releases. Perhaps the most famous, long-standing fall beer style of all is the Märzenbier, or more commonly known simply as “Festbier.” To commemorate the annual German tradition of Oktoberfest, we once again offer our take on this classic German style. With origins dating back to 16th century Bavaria, the original Märzen style was touted as “dark brown, full-bodied, and bitter.” Typically brewed during the warmer spring months, the beer was often stored in cellars before finally being served during Oktoberfest. Boasting a notable hop presence, Scratch #112 displays moderate bitterness while still maintaining the classic malt character you’ve come to expect from a traditional Festbier. Prost!
