Northbound Smokehouse & Brewpub debuts their Polar Vortex Eisbock
Legend has it that Eisbock is a style of beer that was an accidental discovery in Germany in 1890. The Reichelbräu Brewery in Kulmbach, Germany left some casks of their Bockbier outside on a bitterly cold night and the casks froze leaving behind only a small amount of liquid. Upon drinking the beer they realized that the liquid had a high concentration of alcohol because the water froze out.
Since then breweries around the world have made Eisbock beers during the freezing cold of winter. We decided to take advantage of the Polar Vortex this year and create an Eisbock from our Doppelbock. We froze concentrated our 8.3% Doppelbock to a 10.4% Eisbock. Northbound
We are releasing Polar Vortex Eisbock at 3pm on Monday February 10th. There is a very limited amount of this beer available, so get to Northbound on Monday to try it.
