According to Wikipedia, which must be correct, “The style known now as bock was a dark, malty, lightly hopped ale first brewed in the 14th century by German brewers in the Hanseatic town of Einbeck. The style from Einbeck was later adopted by Munich brewers in the 17th century and adapted to the new lager style of brewing. Due to their Bavarian accent, citizens of Munich pronounced “Einbeck” as “ein Bock” (“a billy goat”), and thus the beer became known as “bock”
Doppel is german for double so this is literally a double bock.
Bocks are traditonally malty and full bodied. A favorite S&O style, this is another brew inspired by the beers of Bamberg, originators of the smoked beer style.
We rounded up honey from our friends at the New Westminster Beekeeper’s Association to combine with the beechwood smoked malt, which added depth to this complex strong German-style. Lagered for eight weeks to fully develop and mature, it drinks rich and smooth. The 7.9% ABV will sneak up on you as you leisurely sip this full-bodied lager.
Light smoke, gentle sweetness and a round, balanced finish make this a perfect beer to enjoy while seated in a leather chair with your feet up on a rich mahogany coffee table. To pair with an elegant meal. Or, you know, on your beat up couch while you watch football. Whatever works for you friends.
Zum Wohl. To your health.
