Märzen – the most popular type of beer in Austria
The victory in the Märzen category is particularly valuable for the Egger private brewery, because the Märzen/Lager is the most popular type of beer in Austria and represents a proud 64 percent of the beer market in Austria. The name is derived from the month of March, because in the past people brewed in autumn, covered the storage barrels with ice during the winter and after the ice had melted in March, the beer in the barrel was also ripe.
The Egger Märzen beer is available nationwide in stores and in selected catering establishments in both the 0.5l can and in the glass bottle of 0.33 liters and 0.5 liters.
Falstaff is an internationally recognized publishing house. The magazine of the same name with a focus on enjoyment, wine, food and travel is one of the most renowned in the entire German-speaking region.
