Schell Bock


Brewed by August Schell Brewing Company
New Ulm, Minnesota USA
Style: Dunkler Bock | Ratings: 57 | Winter Seasonal | Alcohol: 5.6%
This legendary beer style has a richness of history to match its rich flavor. The beer was named in Einbeck, Germany during a city celebration where the strong dark beer was being served. It seems that a bock (the German word for goat) entered the grounds unseen. Soon after, one of the villagers was knocked to the ground. The bock was standing nearby and to this day it is still unclear whether it was the beer, or the bock, which leveled the villager. <br /> Ingredients: Pale, Caramel, Cara Pils and Black malts, imported Hallertau and domestic Cascade hops. <br /> Available January through April.
