Default What is "slow-brewed beer"?

The other day I came across one of those antique promotional bar signs, and after the name of the (now defunct Heidelberg) brewery, it said "The Slow Brewed Beer."

A google search shows a few other incidences of people using the same phrase, but for the life of me, I can't figure out what it refers to. Does it have anything to do with the actual brew process? If so, what?

Lagering... it's the same marketing BS as the "cold brewed" catch phrase a few use today...

I "slow-brewed" my IIPA a couple months ago. I think the brew day lasted like 8 hours from heating strike water to closing the fermenter.

A lager fermentation or an extended boil (90 minute) is sometimes marketed as "slow brewed".

Perhaps it is made by "special" brewers?
