We’re in the month of May, which means it’s Maibock season at Prost. This flavorful, malty bockbier made its return on Monday, May 5th – Cinco de Maibock! Like our Märzen Oktoberfest in the fall and Doppelbock lager in the winter, Maibock is a seasonal release and style that’s associated with a time of year. Its release marks the arrival of spring and specifically the month of May. Bockbier dates back to the Munich brewers of the 17th century, and Maibock was developed more recently than other bock styles.
One taste of our Maibock and you’ll understand the tradition and authenticity we put into it and each of our biers. Pale malts and noble hops give this lager loads of flavor while keeping it medium-bodied and highly drinkable. It’s not as dark and rich in malt character as a traditional bock, but tends to have a drier finish and more prominent hop character. You’ll get a sweetness from the malt, floral and earthy hop flavors, and a crisp, clean mouthfeel. Although Bavarian monks consumed bockbier as a nutrition source while fasting, our Maibock pairs very well with all kinds of foods.
Maibock is a bier you don’t want to miss this season. It’s an authentic taste of springtime in Bavaria, right here in Denver. Bring some friends, or make some new ones, and join us in the Prost biergarten as we raise a glass to warmer weather, good health and good bier!
