Brewer's Notes You'll Be Bock For This One

Inspired by the smoked beers (Rauchbier) of Bamberg, Germany, amped into this century with the super-human abilities of our Head Brewmaster. A smoky aroma with underlying sweet caramel malt. Flavor is smoke at first but gives way to a delicious malty goodness. Smooth with a light hop bitterness. Bavarian monks would have chanted relentlessly as they became one with this brew... "I’ll be bock!"

Our Process German-Style Brewing

We love German-style beers just as much as our IPAs! Our BrauKon brewhouse and cellar help us achieve world-class German-style beer. We carefully select from imported malts and hops, and use traditional brewing and cellaring processes to create these classic brews.

One such process is called floatation, where sterile air is injected into the cold wort stream to create a supersaturated solution. Those air bubbles then release, grabbing hold of impurities and pulling them out of solution into a thick layer of foam. After decanting, we’re left with a clean wort and yeast for a purer fermentation. For our lagers, we employ horizontal lagering tanks which create a larger surface area to beer depth. The yeast doesn’t have to travel as far to settle out of the beer, which yields a clearer and cleaner tasting lager.
