Bock beers are sturdy, malty lagers originating from the town of Einbeck in Germany but made famous in Munich in the 1600s. Once a regular spring staple of Ontario’s microbreweries, this beer style has fallen out of favour with craft beer drinkers recently and is tough to hunt down. All the more reason to seek out this Urbock (original bock) from the organic, family-owned outfit of Beau’s All Natural Brewing Company. They take German beer styles seriously and pull them off with flare. Look for this dark, warming and richly malty beer style pouring at bars in February and for sale at the Beau’s retail store in Vankleek Hill.
