A legendary beer that is thanks to chance and a lazy fellow.

There is a story behind this beer specialty that has become a legend among beer brewers. It is said that the Eisbock originated in 1890. It has always been the job of the journeymen to clear the beer barrels from the yard to the cellar. One evening, a lazy Franconian journeyman brewer decided to postpone this duty until the next day, triggering not only the wrath of his master, but also a very special lawsuit. Over the course of the winter night, the bock beer in the barrels almost completely froze. The next morning the master awaited his journeyman with a sermon and his punishment: the unruly journeyman was to drink the remaining liquid from the barrels. The supposedly bad taste should be a lesson to him. But instead of a punishment, drinking the beer was a real joy: the freezing process had transformed the bock beer into a sweet specialty.

Nowadays people no longer rely on the weather conditions, but rather intentionally cause the freezing process. After fermentation, the beer is frozen to increase the alcohol content. In addition, intense flavor levels develop. To make this even more complex and sophisticated, the Eisbock is also aged in wooden barrels for several months.

The result of this complex process is a chestnut-colored beer with a browned, fine-pored head of foam. Intense aromas of roasted malt, dried red fruits, woody sherry, chocolate and marzipan rise from the foam and tempt you to take the first sip. A velvety-soft mouthfeel awaits you, the Eisbock enchants with its wonderful creaminess and a strong body. The first impression is confirmed in the taste: roasted malt, toffee, dark dried fruits and chocolate come together to create a beer that almost passes for a liquid dessert. Delightfully sweet with a hint of bitter hops and subtle sour notes.

A feast for the senses!
