Known as Ares to the Greeks and Mars to the Romans, the God of war and agriculture lends his name to this farmhouse ale that pays tribute to the Bière de Mars style—a rare subtype of the French Bière de Garde. It pours amber red and is capped by white foam. Low bitterness emphasizes the malt character—rich yet mellow with undertones of toasty toffee. French Saison yeast creates a decidedly dry finish with distinctive farmhouse funkyness that is accented by the subtle herbal and fruity notes of French Strisselspalt hops. Full-flavored yet easy-drinking, it's perfectly suited for the transition into the growing season, from the cold months of winter to the fertile days of spring.

We strongly recommend ordering dry yeast in the summer months or if ordering from warmer climates. We do include complimentary Cold Ice Packs with all liquid yeasts. However, it is difficult to guarantee that the ice packs will survive the trip, given transit times and particularly hot temperatures.

Product Details
Bière de Mars is a rare subtype of the French Bière de Garde style. Bière de Garde (literally “beer for keeping”) comes from the farmhouse brewing traditions of the region, where beer was brewed in the cooler months in between growing seasons. Bière de Garde was strong and malty, capable of being stored for substantial periods of time, to be drank throughout the warm summer months to sustain the farmers until the return of the cool weather of the brewing season. Bière de Mars (literally “beer of March”) was the last beer brewed at the end of the brewing season (usually around March), brewed to a lower gravity than Bière de Garde, it was intended to be drank fresh rather than cellared like Bière de Garde - it was the last to be brewed, and the first to be drank.
