05/15 from 06:00 PM-09:00 PM
Join Seattle's Original German Pubs everyday as they welcome in Spring and Seattle Beer Week with a selection of rare German Mai-Bock beers.
Bock is a type of strong lager beer, first brewed in the 14th century in the Hanseatic town of Einbeck, Germany, from which it gets its name (originally "Einbeck" / "Einbock"). The original Bocks were dark beers, brewed from high-colored malts. Modern Bocks can be dark, amber, red or pale in color. Bock was traditionally brewed for special occasions, often religious festivals such as Christmas, Easter or Lent.
Bocks have a long history of being brewed and consumed by Roman Catholic monks in Germany. During the spring religious season of Lent, monks were required to fast. High-gravity Bock beers are higher in food energy and nutrients than lighter lagers, thus providing sustenance during this period. Similar high-gravity Lenten beers of various styles were brewed by monks in other lands as well (see Trappist beer).
Featuring Mr. Fred Schumacher, President of HB America as your host.
