Foggy Lager

This very elegant award-winning beer was the first brew from The Olde Heurich Brewing Company, and was previously named Olde Heurich Maerzen (MAYR-tsen) Beer.

Renamed Foggy Bottom Lager in 1997, it is a wonderful example of an old-world German Märzen beer, März being German for March, the month in which these beers were originally brewed before refrigeration was invented.

It is somewhat maltier than our Foggy Ale, which gives it an exquisite balance between hops and malt, and thus a more complex flavor profile. Foggy Lager has a medium body and is unusually creamy smooth on the palate from start to finish, something which some might not expect from a darker beer.
