SKU# UB10183

Last to be brewed, and the first to be drank!

Flat Rate Shipping only $7.99 only from Northern Brewer
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.

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.

An easy to brew, delicious beer.
Northern Brewer has done it again. This is a great beer to brew and as always it showed up with all the correct ingredients in a timely manner. I would strongly recommend this beer to any friend.

The beer is great
The delivery service not so good. Why does it take two weeks to get the order? I thought it was a fluke but I just ordered another and it appears it will take over a week as well.

This needs 3oz of hops, I went and bought another oz of German Spalt to try and get the IBUs up to 20. Other than that, THIS KIT IS AWESOME!!!

Looking forward to this one...
Brewed the Extract version of this kit back in June of 2014. Came out awesome with an ABV of close to 7%. Fermented this one at the low end at 65 which let the malt shine. Very crisp and dry finish with subtle fruity notes. A winner and I am looking forward to the All-Grain version and experimenting with the flavors the yeast produce at higher fermentation temps.
