Free State 1933 Lager


Formerly brewed at Free State Brewing Company
Lawrence, Kansas USA
Style: Oktoberfest/Märzen | Ratings: 2 | Alcohol: -
The year 1933 saw the repeal of national prohibition in the United States. While it was not fully repealed until Dec. 5th, it was amended to allow the production of beer on April 7th. Many of the long suffering national brewers whose livelihoods were restored were of German heritage and it only seemed right to brew this malty, German style lager to commemorate the occasion. Using German malts and prized Czech Saaz hops, we've brewed a very smooth and drinkable toast to the repeal. The color is very light amber and the aroma is malty with a delicately spicy hop note. Brewed as a German Style Maerzen or March beer, this is also very similar to the Octoberfest style. O.G. - 13.1°P/1052 Hops -19 IBUs
