Castle Island Toasts to Tradition with New Lager, Wundergold

After winning a silver medal at last year’s Great American Beer Festival for their American Lager, Castle Island is ready to launch Wundergold, a new Märzen Lager.

This 5.8% ABV easy-drinking lager is clean and crisp and boasts a malty backbone of toasted bread crust with a hint of candied cherry and delicate floral notes. The simplicity of this style gives Wundergold’s nuanced characteristics a chance to shine.

“We’ve been turning the screws on a traditional Märzen recipe since early this year and had been quite pleased with the initial test batches,” comments Head Brewer Matt DeLuca. “Wundergold is our take on an old-world style that represents the passing of seasons, and we couldn’t be happier about adding another lager to our wholesale rotation this harvest season.”

To celebrate Wundergold’s launch on Saturday, August 17th, Castle Island’s taproom will play host to a culinary showdown pitting local brewery food pop-ups Brato Brewhouse & Kitchen and CUFFS Counter head-to-head in a fried chicken competition. The dishes will incorporate Wundergold, and taproom visitors can vote on their favorite interpretation throughout the day. The champion will be announced at the end of the event and on the company’s social media channels. The event will also feature live music set to the backdrop of Castle Island’s production space and will see the special release of limited edition Wundergold glassware.
