King PilsBock


Brewed by King Brewery
Nobleton, Canada
Style: Heller Bock | Ratings: 29 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 6.5%
One-of-a-kind Pilsner/Bock Hybrid 6.5% alc./vol. The first of its kind in the world, and King Brewery’s newest addition, KING PILSBOCK is the unique hybrid creation of expert and award winning Brewmaster Phil DiFonzo. After years of homebrewing accolades, the nurturing of his very own craft brewery to fruition, two feature beers, and continuing acclaim and awards (including 3 consectutive Canadian Brewing Awards gold medals for King Pilsner), DiFonzo was destined to push the boundaries of brewing yet again, this time by blending two of his favourite recipes. This high-alcohol (6.5%), seasonal beer is a polished golden coloured lager that transcends beer styles, in effect defining a new one. Aromatic and crisp, with a hint of caramel, sturdy malt flavour compliments a definite hops presence, leading to a lingering and complex finish. In the works for the last few years now, KING PILSBOCK continues to solidify King Brewery as brewers of both world class lagers, and ultra-premium beer.
