Heavy Seas - Märzen
Maryland, Est. Calories: 172, ABV: 5.25%
Named for the month they were historically brewed in—Märzen is German for March—märzen beers are typically amber in color and well-aged. This particular one, brewed in Baltimore, has a toasted, biscuity character and a slight sweetness, which comes from the crystal malt. And although it’s available year-round, it’s at its finest in the fall. “This beer is the real deal,” said Suzanne Schalow from Craft Beer Cellarin Belmont, Massachusetts, which stocks over 750 varieties of beer.
