    San Diego Brewery Launches Beloved Märzen Lager Early This Year

    SAN DIEGO, CA (July 2021) – Fans of AleSmith Brewing Company’s seasonal Märzen lager can rejoice as they get a head start on Oktoberfest flavors with the return of the brewery’s coveted AleSchmidt Oktoberfest! By popular demand, the brewery has decided to release its beloved Märzen-style creation two months earlier than previous years, bestowing lovers of the German-style lager more time to sip and savor their favorite limited-release brew.

    “AleSchmidt is the perfect beer to round out the summer and get you ready for fall,” says Peter Cronin, Quality Manager at AleSmith. “It’s clean, toasty and elegant.”

    Clocking in at 5.5% ABV, AleSmith’s take on this classic has become a seasonal staple comprised of a fresh, polished and toasty malt character. The original German-style, amber lager emerged in Germany and Austria hundreds of years ago, though it was made famous for being served at Munich’s Oktoberfest celebration starting in 1872. AleSmith pays homage to the classic style with rich malt complexities that complement the brew’s characteristic clean hop bitterness and toasted aroma.

    AleSchmidt Oktoberfest is available in 6-packs of 12-oz. cans at select retailers across California, Arizona, Colorado, Illinois, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New York, New Jersey, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin. It will also be available in Australia, Canada, Chile, China, Denmark, Japan, Korea and Mexico.

    I can't remember ever seeing or tasting this one. Oddly I was just wondering to myself whether FW was going to offer their Oaktoberfest this year.

    Ya I've never seen this beer at all. We did start to see a lot more alesmith beer in my area just recently so I will keep an eye out for this one. Never seen the Firestone offering either
