We're also rolling out the barrel! We've secured a special gravity-fed wooden keg of
Original Hochzeitsbier von 1810. Direct from Austria, then kegged in Oxford, CT!
Our “Original Hochzeitsbier von 1810” goes back to the original “Maerzen-style beer” that was served in 1810. Relative to today’s “adjusted” Octoberfestbiers it is much darker in color, much stronger in alc/vol, and much more full-bodied! Just the way beers were brewed around that time!
This beer is the end result of a lot of research by the head brewer at Hofstetten. We asked him to “throw out the rulebook” and the preconceived “definition” of Maerzen/Oktoberfestbier that Spaten set well after the royal wedding that established the tradition. His research of beers of 1810 (the year of the royal wedding commemorated by Oktoberfest) led him to this beer.
