Free State Roggen Bock 3000


Formerly brewed at Free State Brewing Company
Lawrence, Kansas USA
Style: Specialty Grain | Ratings: 5 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 8.5%
Roggen means rye in German. Roggenbier is a traditional German ale that employs a substantial amount of rye malt and is served both filtered and unfiltered. Weve made a strong version of Roggenbier, one of bock strength, with Pilsner, Munich, and Rye malts. Rye malt lends a hint of earthy spiciness and a slightly fuller mouthfeel. Its the yeast, however, that contributes the clove like spiciness to this strong golden ale. Perle and Sterling hops compliment the earthiness of the rye and spiciness of the yeast without taking center stage. This beer is more about the malt and yeast. Deceptive in its strength (8.5% ABV), we thought we would create a big, bold beer to celebrate the brewing of our 3000th batch here at Free State Brewing Co. O.G. 18.7P/1075 Hops 18 IBUs
