Springbok

Background

It’s worth surviving a long, cold winter if you get to drink this in the spring. Springbok represents the gleeful leap from winter dreariness to spring renewal. It has all the depth and strength of a wintry lager, balanced with enough lightness to put a spring in your step.

Style History

While Bock style beers may have originated in 14th century Einbeck, Germany, Maibock is a more recent creation, first brewed in Munich a mere 400 years ago! The paler Maibock and Heller (or Helles) Bocks we know today are brewed for springtime enjoyment and May Day celebrations.

Brewmaster’s Notes

In Germany, Hellerbocks are traditionally tapped the last week of April. We won’t make you wait that long to savor the malty flavors and aromas of toasty baked bread from our premium Munich malts, accented by the mild spiciness of noble Tettnang hops. As winter fades, raise one and toast the oncoming Biergarten weather!
