Marzenbier or March beer is a medium bodied amber lager that is the traditional beer served at Oktoberfest. Why is a beer drunk in October named a March beer you ask? Originally it was brewed in March as a 16th century Bavarian rule prohibited brewing between April and September. This was due to the increased spoilage of beer by wild yeast and bacteria during these warmer months.
