Beech wood smoked malt brings the signature smokiness to this Rauch Bier style Märzen. The addition of Munich malt, dark caramel malt and black roasted malt contribute complexity and balance to the strong smoky goodness. German Magnum hops and Vanguard hops were used to give the beer a well-balanced bitterness and noble hop character.
All Switchback beers are brewed in Burlington, Vermont and are carbonated during fermentation by the yeast itself resulting in a 100% naturally conditioned beer. After aging, we simply move the beer to the keg or bottle, leaving it unfiltered for the freshest, fullest, most natural flavor possible.
