BOCK BEER!!

Each year the promise of spring was confirmed as the first keg of Schell's Bock rolled onto waiting delivery wagons. And since 1860, Schell's Bock has continued in the true German tradition. Completely reformulated for 2009, Schell's Bock has replaced Caramel Bock as our late winter seasonal. Brewed with a harmonious blend of 10 different types of malt and noble hops, Schell's Bock is fermented slowly, and then lagered for an extended period of time to ensure a smooth finish. Perfect for passing even the coldest winter day.

This dark amber colored beer sports a robust malt character.

  1. Actually the Bock sold at Bockfest is a special batch of 3.2 made just for Bockfest. This allows them to get the much cheaper beer license for the event rather than the liquor license that would be required for the full strength stuff. People don't notice as it tastes almost the same. 3.2% by weight converted to by volume makes it 4.054% ABV which isn't far off the normal strength. Also means that 6000 people out in the woods in New Ulm aren't as drunk as they would be. Always good when you're trying to control a crowd like that.
