2 Brothers Chief

Style
Oktoberfest / Märzen
ABV
6.0%

This 2 Brothers seasonal release has previously only been available in draught form - and, being based on the Oktoberfest beer style, usually timed to hit taps around October. Given the Oktoberfest beers were spawned from the German Mí¤rzen style - a strong lager brewed in March to last through the summer when hotter temperatures could affect brewing conditions back in the Middle Ages - it makes perfect sense to release some in March too. So here comes The Chief in bottled form (plus a few kegs). It's an ideal beer for this time of year with the mercury starting to fall - bigger than the summer ales and pilsners you've quaffed to cool down but not as imposing as the stouts and porters you'll be looking forward to come winter. Pouring a vibrant copper colour and boasting a rich, creamy mouthfeel, it packs in loads of biscuity, toasty malts and finishes with a nice, lightly spicy tingle, keeping its 6%-plus ABV dangerously well disguised. Following the Voodoo, James Brown and The Guvnor, it's another classy limited release from the Moorabbin bros.
