Brues Alehouse Brewing Co
The winter months call for strong specialty beers, and perhaps the strongest in the German catalogue is the eisbock. Traditionally, this beer is frozen and the ice is removed, leaving an intensely concentrated beer with substantial alcohol behind. While we are not capable of this method, we were able to coax a tremendous amount of alcohol from our house lager strain, 11% ABV! Upon completing fermentation, we barrel-aged this brew in Law's Whiskey barrels for 2 months. The result is an intensely complex German-style beer with an American twist. Ideal for cold days, and best paired with rich dishes!
