January: “SCHWARZ BIER” (Translation: Black Bier)
5.5% ABV | 33 IBU
Dark and bold. An opaque, black-colored lager with lots of dark and roasted malt character. Rich blends of caramel and chocolate malts create a malt-forward, chocolaty-sweet flavor.
February: “DOPPEL BOCK” (Translation: Double Bock)
8.0% ABV | 23 IBU
Malty, sweet and strong are the dominant characteristics of this powerful lager. A rich, complex and full-bodied Double Bock bier with dominant flavors of sweet caramel, toffee, and toasted barley. Look for hints of dark fruits and licorice produced by this bier’s extended maturation period.

An amber-colored lager with a medium body and a smooth, malty character. There are characteristics of both biscuit and caramel as well. It has a delicate sweetness and a moderate hop finish. The result is one very balanced bier that everyone can enjoy.
April: “HOPFEN SPEZIAL” (Translation: Hoppy Special)
5.8% ABV | 40 IBU
An amber pale lager is unfiltered and noticeably more hoppy than most of our biers in both flavor and aroma. Hints of citrus are balanced by a rich malty backbone. We enjoy trying new age hops from Germany in this Cold IPA relative. Ask us what hops we selected for this year’s brews!
May: “MAIBOCK” (Translation: May Bock)
7.2% ABV | 24 IBU
Imported from Munich, Germany, this is the oldest and first original bock bier of Munich, originating in 1614. A rich, flavorful bock bier to celebrate the arrival of Spring and the opening of biergartens! It is noticeably malty and sweet, with a warming alcohol note.
June: “HOPFEN WEIZEN” (Translation: Hoppy Wheat)

August: “SOMMER WEIZEN” (Translation: Summer Wheat)
