Señor Wong & MN Beer Activists are proud to bring the next event in our Flight with Bites pairing series. This time around we are tasting Bock beer. Some are traditional, some not. We will delve into the history of bock and explore all the flavors it has to offer.
Featured Beer Style: Bock
Schell Bock (MN)
This legendary beer style has a richness of history to match its rich flavor. The beer was named in Einbeck, Germany during a city celebration where the strong dark beer was being served. It seems that a bock (the German word for goat) entered the grounds unseen. Soon after, one of the villagers was knocked to the ground. The bock was standing nearby and to this day it is still unclear whether it was the beer, or the bock, which leveled the villager.
Ingredients: Pale, Caramel, Cara Pils and Black malts, imported Hallertau and domestic Cascade hops.
Available January through April.
Hinterland Maple Bock (WI)
Dark color, mahogany hue around the fringe. Complex flavors. Slightly sweet. Rich, chocolatey.
Dark Horse Perkulator Coffee Dopplebock (MI)
This is a true dopplebock and Dark Horse Brewing’s only publicly distributed lager. It was so normal that we couldn’t stand it so we made it into a coffee dopplebock. Ha, take that Germany, with your Reinheitsgebot purity law! Anyway, we use fair trade organic coffee from our friends at The Ugly Mug Cafe in Ypsilanti, MI We did a label contest and opened it up to the public for this beer. We had so many awesome entries that we couldn’t just pick one winner so we have 2 labels for this beer. We stagger the bottles in the six packs but with no order in mind.
Capital Brewery Maibock (WI)
A bock beer with a beautiful, deep golden hue. Very smooth, this beer has great depth of character, and is an excellent beer to celebrate the end of winter and beginning of spring. Available February through April.
Space is limited to the first 50 guests, please follow the link to our facebook event’s page and let us know if you’re coming. See you there!
