EIGHT DAYS, SEVEN NIGHTS | ONE DEPARTURE A YEAR
The Germans call it Bockbierzeit, loosely translated to bock beer time. Each fall the breweries of this region release their delicious bock beers for the winter. These bocks are may be different than bocks you’ve had in the past. They have a wide range of flavors and can be malty, sweet, deceptively strong and even pale in color. It makes beer hunting even more fun because you never know what is around the corner. You just have to be ready to lock ‘n load and consume.
The breweries of Schlenkerla and Spezial even brew smoked bocks. Fässla makes one of the strongest bocks called Bambergator, that weighs in at 8% abv. Most bocks range between 6.5% to 7.5% abv.
