Free State Bowersock Bock


Formerly brewed at Free State Brewing Company
Lawrence, Kansas USA
Style: Dunkler Bock | Ratings: 5 | Spring Seasonal | Alcohol: -
This is a smooth dark German style lager often made in the spring or fall as a sort of tonic. This is a smooth and malty beer with a delicate hop balance. Named after early Lawrence industrialist J.D. Bowersock. Bowersock constructed the Bowersock Mills & Power Co just to the north of our location on the banks of the Kansas River This early hydro-electric plant supplied power to most of downtown as well as to other riverside industries. The power plant still exists and is operated by Bowersock’s descendants. Bowersock also built Liberty Hall , once the Bowersock Theater, on the ruins of the 1880s Bowersock Opera House which burned in 1911. Liberty Hall stands just to our south and is now a thriving venue for movies and live productions of all sorts.
O.G. - 16.8/1067. Hops - 27.5 IBUs
