A steinbier is not defined by ingredients but by process. While many of the beers brewed to this style are matly, Märzen-style lagers, the term properly describes any beer where the wort is brought to a boil by heating stones and dropping them into the brew kettle, then adding the stones, now with a coating of caramelized sugar, to the wort in the fermenter. The result is a unique caramelized, smoky taste in the finished beer.
