Featured Beers - Bocks

Einbeck, Germany

They Say: “This famous specialty beer with its refreshing taste is produced every spring.”

We Say: While the green bottle scared off most people, this Maibock poured a deep golden color with a dense white head and was totally unskunked. The nose is laced with a light white grape sweetness, floral hop and bready sweet malts. Dark rum molasses-like with light pipe tobacco notes, this Maibock has a bolder sweetness uninterrupted by hop interaction. The sweet lingering finish is lightly dry, producing a beer that we enjoyed as the best overall Maibock of the batch!

They Say: “Pale malt flavors are balanced with a rich hop character and a light fruit bouquet in this seasonal spring lager. Traditional dry-hopping and extended aging give this blonde bock a distinctive flowery aroma and a potent kick.”

We Say: Another hometown brew, Sprecher’s Maibock keeps the pace with its golden honey color and dense white head. Favorably more hoppy than the rest, German noble hop floral notes overlap the biscuit malt that finishes with a touch of sourdough. Finding their way to the background in flavor, the hops let the rich toasty malt and burnt caramel do most of the work. Very well balanced, the lightly dry finish has a touch of soapiness and hop astringency. Easily drinkable, Sprecher’s Maibock is a definite spring beer meant to be enjoyed during the warmer months.

Abita Springs, LA

They Say: “Bock (January – March) is the first of our seasonal brews. It is brewed with Perle hops and pale and caramel malts. Our Bock is similar to a German Maibock in its high malt content, full body and slightly higher alcohol content. Abita Bock is a very popular brew, especially during our Mardi Gras season. Gruyére, Emmental and Swiss are nice cheese choices with Bock. Great with roasted beef or pork. Try it with Mexican food, too.”

We Say: Starting like a short-lived celebration, Abita Mardi Gras erupts with loose white bubbles forming over a clear honey-colored beer that dissipates quickly. Pineapple and soft burnt caramel open the sweet aroma that finishes lightly sulfuric and hard. Faint bitter orange peel hides behind pils malt sweetness and caramel cube while floral aspects transition from flavor to the balanced sweet-but-dry finish. While deep, Mardi Gras moves around quite a bit and feels rather thin for the larger alcohol content.

Luna Coffee Stout PDF Print E-mail
Featured Beers - Stouts

$9-$10 per 4 pack 16 oz bottles

Hailing from Green Bay, Hinterland has emerged as one of Wisconsin’s up-and-coming craft breweries to take note of in 2012 (if you haven’t already, that is). Founded in 1995 by Bill and Michelle Tressler, this craft brewery first established its presence in Milwaukee in 2007 with the opening of Hinterland Erie Street Gastropub. Boasting a steady supply of year-round beers and rotational seasonals, a standout among the clan is surely the Luna Coffee Stout.

Using local coffee from Luna Cafe (located in DePere), Hinterland’s stout looks like a meal in a glass. From its dark body to the thick, tan head that tops it off, this brew is unusually light and goes down easy. The smell of coffee emanating from this beer is undeniable, dominating the overall aroma. On the palate, the delicious coffee flavor is complemented by a hint of rich dark chocolate. It is this combination of flavors that gives the Luna Stout a pleasant—but not overpowering—lingering sweetness. A fantastic twist on a classic style of beer, this tasty concoction makes it dangerously easy to knock back a few, yet still leaves you wanting more.
