How the brewery describes the beer: Our doppelbock (German for
“double bock”) celebrates the style originally
developed by medieval monks. Living by the
strict rules of their order, monks were regularly
required to castigate themselves by periodic
bouts of fasting, when next-to-no solid food was
allowed to pass their lips. The longest and most
taxing of these periods of culinary abstinence
was, of course, Lent—the 46 days between Ash
Wednesday and Easter Sunday. Because the
monks believed that liquids not only cleansed the
body but also the soul, they would make plenty
of “liquid bread” instead of solid bread from
their grain and then drink it in copious quantities…
the more, the holier.

“Rock and Roll” may have been
coined in Cleveland, but the influence of this
genre reaches far beyond the shores of Lake Erie.
Our Doppelrock bears witness to everything
double: double bock flavor, dueling rockers and
the double neck guitar made famous by many
rock legends.
