Boscos Spring Malt Tonic


Brewed by Boscos Brewing Company
Memphis, Tennessee USA
Style: Dunkler Bock | Ratings: 4 | Spring Seasonal | Alcohol: -
Looking for a beer to brew to help celebrate "Brew Years Eve", the April 7th anniversary of the repeal of prohibition? We came across this formula for the pre-prohibition American-style Bock. Called a malt tonic, the formula had an obscure and unexplained reference stating it was "Guaranteed not to be medicated to such an extent as to preclude its use as a beverage."* Boscos stands by that guarantee! O.G. 1064 I.B.U. 36
