NoteStreams By Matt Archambault
To drink any beer in 2013 is to experience the culmination of hundreds of years of development, experimentation, and even a few happy accidents. For no style is this more true than for the German Eisbock. Once a rare find in the US, the last few years have seen more transatlantic shipping of bottles, and even occasional kegs.
To fully understand and appreciate Granitbock Ice, it is best to understand the style variations used to make it.
With flavors of dark fruit brandy and a well-hidden alcohol content of 11.5%, you might also be surprised to learn that the extra step in the brewing process required to achieve these qualities is the same treatment used to create Bud Ice.
