Trinity Stop Making Sense Eisbock

Brewed by Trinity Brewing Company
Colorado Springs, Colorado USA
11% Eisbock | 39 Ratings | Winter Seasonal |
Friday, January 29th @ 5pm Release of Stop Making Sense! Stop Making Sense is an Eis Bock. In old German tradition, this style of Lager was developed by when aging a batch of Doppel Bock in barrels and in caves. The temperature of the caves dropped low enough to partially freeze some of the water contained in the beer, hence giving birth to a new style of beer. Eis bocks are the strongest German beer brewed today, thanks to the freezing of the beer. This process of freezing the beer also concentrates malts and hops, making those flavors even more intense! 11% ABV. This beer will be sold in 750 mL bottles only.
