Fighting Billy Bock

Minhas Craft Brewery

USA

Minhas Brewing is the latest in a long string of names for the old Joseph Huber Brewing Co of Monroe WI. Minhas is part of the legacy of that brewery that goes back to the 1840's. Unfortunately, with all that brewing experience, they couldn't really get this bock right. What they got was closer to Shiner, a bock by name but not by flavor. It comes in at 5.5% abv, so for a bock it should've been at least another half a percent. It's malty, and tastes somewhat good, but it could have been a little more of a warmer. I guess it's more of a summer bock, if you want to use such a term. It's not going to keep you warm all winter.
