COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewing in the land of fire and ice (The Eastern Sierra) since 1995 has brought us to this style of beer, where we use a long intense boil to concentrate color, flavor, and natural sugars. Then after fermentation, we freeze no more than 2% of the water content out of the beer. This concentrates the alcohol and smooths out the flavor for a true winter seasonal. Like a bliss of a "one swing stick" into the ice, this beer will distill your attention down to the single focus of the bend of your elbow. Fire and Eisbock will age well, but do drink one now to compare with our barrel-aged eisbock.
