Texas Bock coming soon

ELECK BREWS AND NORSEMAN  BREWERY COLLABORATED ON A BOCK BEER IN MID-MAY. THIS BOCK IS 6.4 % AND 30 IBU.  WE FOLLOWED A RECIPE I FIRST USED WHEN I BREWED THIS BEER DOWN IN TEXAS ON ELBECK STREET; IT WAS MY FIRST EVER LAGER. SINCE THEN, I NEED TO BREW THIS BEER ONCE A YEAR SO I CAN HAVE IT ON MY OWN HOME  TAP.

SO WHAT IS A TEXAS BOCK, YOU ASK?

THE STORY GOES THAT  WHEN GERMAN IMMIGRANT BREWERS CAME TO TEXAS AND STARTED A BREWERY, THEY WANTED TO USE LOCAL INGREDIENTS. ONE OF THESE, WAS CORN.  THIS INGREDIENT GIVES THE BEER A GREAT CORN CHARACTER, ALONG WITH NICE MALT THAT FINISHES WELL WITH THE HOPS .

ELBECK BREWS WILL SELL THE BEER AS  “TEXAS BOCK”.  IT WILL BE AVAILABLE IN 20L ,30L, 50L AND 650 ML BOTTLES THOUGH CONNECT.

NORSEMAN WILL SELL THE BEER AS “LONE STAR BOCK”. IT WILL BE  AVAILABLE  ON TAP AND IN 650 ML BOTTLES AT THE BREWERY.

THIS PRODUCTION RUN IS VERY LIMITED (30 CASES FOR NORSEMAN,  30  CASES FOR ELBECK BREWS), SO ASK FOR IT AT YOUR LOCAL  BAR OR LIQUOR STORE BEFORE IT’S ALL GONE.

WATCH FOR UPDATES AND SAMPLE THESE BREWS
