Our 2021 Bockfest will be held on April 17th from 1pm to 7pm. It will be an in-person event! Please remember that we are still required to wear masks.
Bockfest celebrates the arrival of Bock beer, a beer traditionally brewed over the winter months, when the water would freeze. Brewers would scoop out the ice crystals, resulting in a beer with a higher sugar and alcohol content. One of the unique traditions associated with Bock beer is “poking,” where a hot poker is taken from a fire and swirled through a mug of Bock. This caramelizes those higher-content sugars, resulting in a more complex, toasted flavor in the beer.
