Then we left all that junk in the kitchen and brewed a real f*&@ing beer. A more elegant style from a civilized age, the DoppleBeast warms the palate and the soul with rich maltiness and fruity, nutty yeast character.

Behind The Name
Bock style of beer was originally brewed in the German town of Einbeck, and later adopted by surrounding areas including the much larger city of Munich. However, the Bavarian’s accents of the Munich people mispronounced their neighbor’s city name and, rather than calling it an Einbeck, they pronounced it “ein Bock” which translates to “a billy goat.” The people of Munich had a good laugh and then forever referred to the beer as a bock. The German word, “doppel” means “double.” So, subsequently, doppel bock, means double goat. Bocks are a great cold weather, holiday beer. Doppelbocks are often referred to as a “meal in a glass,” or “liquid bread” for their heavy flavor and strong alcohol content. Doppelbocks are often very sweet, yet intensely malty. The high amount of alcohol typically keeps the head of the beer quite low, while the color can range from a pale brown to a dark amber and even near black.
