Brewed by Bayern Brewing
The number of fans and friends of Bayern Brewing has steadily been increasing out in Eastern Montana. Bayern Brewing wanted to recognize the hard-working folks who are "Rockin’ the Bakken" by honoring them with our own black gold, a German Dark Doppelbock called "Bakken Bock."
Bayern Brewing has been brewing authentic Bavarian beers like its award-winning Doppelbock for over 20 years. Bakken Bock is a lager, so it is smooth and does not have the rough bite and/or aftertaste of other dark beers such as stouts or porters. It is also moderately-hopped with German Hallertauer Perle and Czech Saaz hops, so it is a well-balanced treat after a hard day on the oil fields. Of course, with a starting gravity of 18+ degrees Plato and an 8.4% ABV, it means you really ought to heed that warning about no operating heavy machinery after drinking Bakken Bock.
**Submission note: Although similar to Bayern’s Doppelbock, the recipe has been changed to make this a unique entry.
