Many Iowans are descendents from German immigrants so it’s fitting that we make one of the most famous German beers: dopplebock. In the 18th century, monks used to brew bready bock beers to sustain them during their long Lenten fast when they could drink but not eat. Our dopplebock came out big, burly and chewy, hence the name ChewBOCKa.
ChewBOCKa is made with plenty of Munich malt for a rich, chewy, full-body flavor as well as German Spalter Select, German Tettnanger and American Mt. Hood hops to balance out the malty sweetness. There are also some toasty notes as well as a slight hint of chocolate. Dopplebocks are on the malty end of the beer spectrum, making them a nice change of pace from bitter ales.
