The Story

The Winter Beast scrambles and leaps on the high mountain crags. Mountain Goats with unfathomable daring, they gracefully combine sure-footedness and fearlessness. They endure the coldest temperatures and sheerest cliffs. Although not a true goat, this bock (German for goat) is named for the mountain goat of Rocky Mountains.

The Beer

The Winter Beast Doppelbock is brewed in the classic German-style. The style initially brewed in the 14th century by German brewers in Einbeck, and later brewed by Munich brewers starting in the 1600s. Due to their Bavarian accent, citizens of Munich pronounced “Einbeck” as “ein Bock” or in English “goat“. That’s how the Goat Lager or Bock got. The Doppelbock is literally the “double goat“, or a bigger, more flavorful version of the traditional bock. The perfect lager for winter in the Bavarian Alps, or the Rocky Mountains for that matter, the Winter Beast Doppelbock is full-bodied, malty, and with a higher ABV.
