Bock is a type of strong lager beer, first brewed in the 1300′s in the city of Einbeck, Germany from which its name is derived (“Einbeck” / “Einbock”). Bock was traditionally brewed for special occasions, often religious festivals such as Christmas, Easter or Lent. Bocks can be dark, amber or pale in color. Most and moderate to moderately low carbonation and ABV ranges from 6-8%. Bocks usually have a slightly sweet flavor and low bitterness due to the rich malts and low amount of hops typically used.
