Rochester's Best Beer in America's Best Can

"Our take on the 16th century German legend has turned out to be a legend in its own right," says the brewery of its Genesee Bock Beer. "For every spring since 1951, our brewery has carefully crafted and lagered Genesee Bock Beer. The result is an exceptionally hearty, full-flavored beer with a slight malty finish—and a perfect way to celebrate the snow melt."

Bock "is historically associated with special occasions, often religious festivals such as Christmas, Easter or Lent," and has "a long history of being brewed and consumed by Bavarian monks as a source of nutrition during times of fasting."

Nice. I've enjoyed Bocks over the years. Good stuff in general.

Once years ago in Dallas I asked for a local beer. Guy brought out some Shiner Bocks. Good stuff from what I recall. Friend even brought a bottle home for his collection.

I was really into Troegenator Double Bock a few years ago. Great taste and bang for the buck.

Ayinger Celebrator Doppelbock is great. Packs a punch. Seriously.

Spaten Optimator - wow. Just: wow. A feast in itself. Be careful with this one. Amazing.

Mind you, I'm an Ale type of guy. Bocks are the closest that lagers get to Ales.

We'll have to have some of these, and more, soon.

Cheers (as I sip a Dogfish Head "Burton Baton")!
