The topic of keeping well has played a crucial role ever since the beginning of the history of brewing. The Bavarian beer ordinance of 1539 stated that beer may only be brewed between Michaelmas (29th September) and St. George’s day (23rd April).
In this way they attempted to reduce the hire fire risk when boiling the wort for the beer and at the same time make possible the cool temperatures required for the fermentation process. In order not to spend the long time until the autumn in a state of constant thirst a beer was brewed in March that kept especially well thanks to its high original gravity and alcohol content. This is one reason why the beer for the Munich Wiesn in October was traditionally a Märzen.
