Winter is a time for dark, full-bodied and warming beer. Some prefer to drink those beers snuggled up around a crackling fire while wearing flannel footed-pajamas. Not us. We like to drink those beers as though they were summer light lagers while we stand outside in the frozen air trying to absorb as much Vitamin D through the space between the top of our scarves and bottom of our beanies as possible.
If you are like us, BOCKFEST is for you.
