German-Style Bock

German-Style Bock Beer

German-style Bock beer is defined by its rich, malty flavour and dark colour. This full-bodied beer is perfect for winter drinking, as it is heavier and more filling than most other styles of beer.

Bock beers originated in the German city of Einbeck, and they were originally brewed using only malt, water, and hops. Today, German brewers still adhere to this traditional brewing method, and the resulting beers are some of the finest in the world. If you’re looking for a beer that is truly distinct, give German-style Bock a try.
