Doppelbocks were originally made by monks that sought a full-bodied, nutrient-fortified beverage to drink during lent…essentially, "liquid bread"! The word Doppel actually translates to "double" and you might suspect and although Dopplebocks are in fact stronger than the traditional Bocks, they are not actually twice the strength. The first thing you will notice about this dark reddish-brown brew is its wonderful, big malty aroma, a great indication of what's to come in the taste. Note a gentle warming mouth feel, indicative of brews with higher alcohol contents. This award-winning German-style Dopplebock is brewed with 2-row pale, Munich, Light Crystal, Crystal, and Chocolate malts along with Perle and Willamette hops. The malt profile creates a caramel sweetness and rich, creamy mouthfeel, which is nicely complemented with a slight hop bitterness. We found this full-bodied brew packed with flavor and a great interpretation of the style. Enjoy!
The Tommyknocker Brewery has been making award-winning brews for over 5 years now. The brewery boasts two locations, one in the heart of the Rocky Mountains in the historic mining town of Idaho Springs, CO and the other, in the Warehouse District of Phoenix, AZ. They've collected several awards at both the Great American Beer Festival and the World Beer Cup and offer a full spectrum of beers, from the light-bodied wheat ale to the big and full Dopplebock featured this month. Tommyknocker knocks out seven different styles at both breweries, including Ornery Amber Lager, Maple Nut Brown Ale, Jack Wacker Wheat Ale, Butt Head Bock, Lost Dutchman Gold Ale, Pick Axe Pale Ale, and Tundrabeary Ale. The brewery also offers several different types of sodas, including Root Beer, Almond Crème, Strawberry Crème, Orange Crème, and Key Lime! All of which can be ordered from their Web site. We'll let you discover those on your own and stick to what we do best!

This month, we are very excited to bring you two great brews from Tommyknocker, Butt Head Bock, winner of the Silver medal at the 1997 Great American Beer Festival in the Dopplebock category, and Pick Axe Pale Ale, also a Silver medal winner at the GABF in both 1997 and 2000 in the Classic English Style Pale Ale category. Both are brewed in Arizona.
