November 18, 2009


bock WHAT? Easter brew. According to The Beer Drinker's Bible, bock beers are associated with Easter and originated in Einbeck, Germany, in the 14th and 15th centuries. ("Bock," which means goat in German, may be a corruption of "beck.") Bocks are aged for at least one month. They're full-flavored, exhibit a malty sweetness, and may taste slightly of chocolate. The alcohol content of bock-style beer, about 7 percent, is relatively high. WHERE? Tom Perini's Beard House dinner WHEN? November 19, 2009 HOW? Shiner Bock Beer
