Impression: One of the greatest brewpubs you’re likely to have the pleasure of enjoying a beer and meal in. It oozes the old world and there’s generally a couple beers from big wooden barrels to add to the atmosphere. Though I’d had the bock from a bottle before, I lucked out last time I was there when it was flowing from the wooden barrel. It had an incredibly soft palate and the malty elements mingled perfectly with ample hopping. The long finish lingered in your mouth right up to the somewhat bitter but altogether pleasant finish. It’s a dangerously drinkable bock!
