Zupan’s Markets has partnered with Breakside Brewery again to develop the 18th beer in the Farm-to-Market lineup.
Zupan’s Farm-to-Market beer series began in 2015 as a partnership between our market and local breweries.
This 18th beer brewed in partnership with Breakside Brewery is a version of a classic Märzen, a traditional German fest lager reminiscent of the malty, amber lagers popular at Oktoberfest throughout the 20th century. It’s a perfect beer to warm you up on a chilly day or to enjoy with friends by the pint on the first warm days of spring.
This amber lager beer will be available at all three of our stores, as well as on tap at select Breakside Brewpub locations. The unique bear label was designed by local artist Erik Abel, like our first Farm to Market beer with Breakside Brewing in 2019.
