a doppelbock-style lagerbier
Crafted in collaboration with the lager making homies of Zillicoah Beer Co. of Asheville, North Carolina. Mashed with local pilsner malt along with heaps of toasty Vienna and Munich malts from our friends at Riverbend Malt House of Asheville, North Carolina. Boiled exclusively in our open-top oak foeder with hot granite rocks, gathered from a quarry in Black Mountain, inside the flames of local cherry and oak. This is the magnificence of steinbier. The rocks are pulled from the flames, dipped into the wort and with a sensational sizzle, a mind-bending amount of caramelization is achieved. Fermented cool with a house favorite lager yeast and conditioned cold for an extra long time. Precisely the way lagers were intended to be.
Our third release of this truly special beer, this cold weather crusher provides delicate notes of Highland scotch whisky and crème brûlée. Along with rich minerality, this iteration of a traditional doppelbock is one of our very seasonal offerings.
