A delectebly classic Maibock with a slight twist - new wave American hops!  We add El Dorado hops to this kit to add a candy-like sweetness to the malty, biscuity finish, giving you a technically sound and classically style Maibock with a very slight and delicious twist.  This was born from one of our favorite distributors, Amy, who was craving a truly authentic and delicious Maibock for the holidays, and we were happy to deliver!  This beer is big, light, and dangerously easy drinking any time of year.

This is a MONSTER Maibock!  Our friend and a local beer distributor that has been making sure that we have access to solid craft beer for years, Amy, wanted to make a super traditional tasting Maibock, but with a twist of modern hops and a little higher abv.  Naturally, we said that sounds great!  After going back and forth between Loral and El Dorado, we landed on El Dorado because this high gravity lager was going to be nice and dry, and we wanted a hint of candy sweetness without it being overbearingly floral, and Amy’s Maibock was born!  After 4 weeks of fermentation and about 6 of cold storage, this beer is ridiculously easy drinking and delicious!  If you aren’t set up to lager, give Imperial Cablecar or Charlie’s Fist Bump a try for a similar yeast profile that can handle such a monster beer!
