- 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.
