Sierra Blanca Brewing - Moriarty, NM
Monthly this section will cover Zach’s brewing escapades at the brewery.
We are excited to have Zach join our team! With the extra man power we will now have the chance to get creative and brew some specialty beers. Last week, Zach brewed a Tripel Belgian. We are really excited to tap this one.
Zach has been tossing around some ideas for his next brew. He is considering doing a Märzen. Märzen is the historic forerunner of the Oktoberfest. In the Middle Ages, brewers had a difficult time brewing good-tasting beers during the hot summer months when the brew could easily become infected with air-born bacteria. To have an ample supply of beer on hand during the summer, brewers worked overtime in March to brew an extra strong and well-hopped beer that would keep for a long time. Märzen is German for March, so the beer came to be known for the month in which it was brewed.
