The strongest beer in the brewery’s arsenal. The delicious Bock is a real man’s beer with over 18 % original gravity.
In the lautering we use only the high-quality first runnings and mature our strong beer for up to 12 weeks in the ice-cold storage cellar. This allows our Bock to best unfold its strong malty body.
- 18.1 % original gravity
- 7.5 % alcohol by volume
- Colour: strongly bronze-coloured
- Bitterness units: 30
- Flavour: Hints of caramel and honey, a strong malty base, suitably bitter
Despite what is often assumed, the name of our Bockbier has nothing to do with the animal (Bock = buck), but instead from a brewmaster from Einbeck in Lower Saxony who moved to Munich in 1614 to brew his “Ainpökisch” beer in the time-honoured Hofbräuhaus. It was of course only a matter of time before the Bavarian pronunciation won out and the name “Bockbier” made the rounds from then on in brewing jargon.
Since the Middle Ages Bockbier was regarded for a long time as a luxury item and was exported over long distances, including up to Italy. In order to ensure that the beer would keep long enough, it was brewed with an exceptionally high original gravity.
In addition, it has a very special place of honour with us, since it went down in the history of our brewery as the beer of our founding fathers and hence as the first of all the Lang beers.
