    All about bock beer

    What is bock beer?

    Bock lager is a strong, dark amber beverage with intense malt flavors and a light hoppiness. It tends to be stronger than other lager styles, so it's definitely not for the faint of heart, and it has an ABV value from 6% to 7%. There are two main categories of bock beers: maibock and doppelbock. The former are paler, while the latter are darker and intense. Both have low carbonation and a well-balanced flavor profile.

    The sweet, malty flavor of a bock goes hand-in-hand with savory foods. Try these beers with aged cheese, roasted meats and stewed fruits. 

    Why is it called "bock"?

    Germans are very creative with the names of their beers. The ancestor of the bock style was a beer from the city of Einbeck, and it was very popular in the Middle Ages. Bavarians were envious of the Einbeck beer so they tried to make their own, but they tended to call it "Einbock" due to language differences in the various regions of Germany. Funny enough, "ein bock" in German means "billy goat." That's why the bottles often feature the image of a goat, in case you were wondering. 

    In Bavaria, the summer is too hot to brew with wild yeasts and replicate that old Einbeck style. To counteract the issue, Bavarians came up with an ingenious solution: They added more alcohol so the beer could resist the summer heat without spoiling. That's how bock beer was born. Bavarian monks used to drink it during the Lent period, to get an energy boost while fasting.
