MARVIN THE MARZEN
Introducing Marvin the Marzen – a homage to the time-honored German-Style Marzen, also known as Oktoberfest. This beer is an embodiment of rich maltiness harmoniously balanced with a touch of clean hop bitterness, reminiscent of the renowned Vienna lager. The name "Marvin the Marzen" holds a dual significance for us. Firstly, it pays tribute to our brewery's visionary owner, Marvin Bowe, whose unwavering commitment to crafting exceptional, historically-rooted beer of the finest caliber drives our endeavors. Our brewery stands as a testament to his passion for brewing traditions worldwide, intertwined with the unique narrative of our town, its people, and our tightly-knit community.
Marvin the Marzen has a personal connection as it bears the name of our owner, while also playfully nodding to his cherished childhood character, the beloved Martian figure who has captured the affections of generations. In crafting this beer, we've merged the essence of traditional Marzen craftsmanship with the inventiveness that defines our brewery's spirit. So, raise a glass of Marvin the Marzen and join us in celebrating heritage, community, and a touch of whimsy in every sip.
Indulge in the hearty satisfaction of grilled meats like succulent hamburgers and flavorful tacos, which harmonize splendidly with the Marzen's malt-forward nature. The beer's depth of flavor complements the smoky notes of the grill, creating a symphony of taste.
Enhance your experience with smear-ripened cheeses such as the exquisite Gruyère or the robust Munster. The Marzen's balanced profile interacts delightfully with these cheeses, heightening their creamy textures and nuanced tanginess. Surprisingly, Marvin the Marzen also pairs elegantly with lighter shellfish and delicate pasta dishes
