Introducing Devil’s Washboard Bavarian Märzen Beer

Brewed exclusively for Ruttger’s by our friends at Cuyuna Brewing Company

RUTTGER’S DEVIL’S WASHBOARD UNVEILING PARTY 
Saturday, May 25 at 4 p.m.
West Deck at Ruttger’s Bay Lake Lodge

After that, Devil’s Washboard beer will be available all summer long exclusively at the Bear Pine Bar & Grill, and Zig’s Restaurant & Bar. The beer is a German style Märzen, amber in color, and has a crisp flavor. The beer was brewed using German hops, though it’s more of a lager, making it very drinkable and refreshing. 

The story behind the name
The name pays homage to the resort’s history. Devil’s Washboard is a small area near Placid Lake a few miles from Ruttger’s where the timbers were harvested that were used to build the lodge. Bavarian Märzen was chosen in keeping with the Ruttger’s German heritage.
