All Things Beer Episode 28 – All Things Bock

In this episode we take a deep dive on strong German lagers from the bock family – doppelbock, maibock, weizenbock, eisbock. We trace the history of this style back through the mists of time to the city of Einbeck, then follow it’s reinvention as a lager in 17th century Munich, and the development of the rich, sweet salvator style that is now known as doppelbock. Then we head out to Edison Brewing in Gahana for a conversation with owner Wil Schulze and brewmaster Victor Ecimovich. Victor shares some of his wisdom learned in brewing traditional German-style beers over many years at breweries including Millstream (Iowa), Goose Island (Chicago) and Hosters (Columbus). The final segment features friend and award winning homebrewer Jamie Gentry for a discussion on homebrewing  bocks.

  1. Pat/Mark. Here is your next assignment should you choose to accept it. Does the annual variation in alpha and beta analysis make it a challenge to brew a consistent IPA each year? The reason I ask is there are two local, notable IPAs that are clearly not the same beer they were in the past. Maybe just an intentional recipe change.
