Wolverine State The Pride of Biscuitville

Formerly brewed at Wolverine State Brewing Company
Ann Arbor, Michigan USA
6% Doppelbock | 1 Rating | Special Release |
"Like the blue Ribbon Pig for which it was imaginarily named, The Pride of Biscuitville is my (Oliver the Brewer) gift to the craft beer world. In the spirit of home brewing where this beer was first crafted over 3 years ago for the first time as an ale, my goal was to brew a beer outside of any style and showcasing a malt that is suggested to be used no more in proportion than about 5%...I used 30%. At Wolverine State we place it in the Bock category of beer for no other reason than nit has no place other than the Specialty Beer category and we believe ALL beers to be special. Plus we use a bock yeast to ferment it cold, and to smooth it out and focus in on the flavor of the Belgian Biscuit malt used in the recipe. You must try it to make your own judgments on flavor, we promise you will like it." Oliver Roberts, Head Brewer
