Summit Maibock
Summit Brewing Company - St. Paul, MN

Summit Brewing's first brewhouse came from Heimertingen in Bavaria, so it's only natural that they honor that heritage by brewing their own Maibock. Unlike its Bavarian counterparts, this Maibock is dark blonde in color and is fermented at slightly warmer temperatures than other lagers to coax more spicy aromas from the hops. As for its flavor, Moravian 37 and Munich malts and Saaz and Mt. Hood hops combine for a toasted sweetness with a subtle spice and pepper character.

Style: Maibock / Helles Bock
ABV:
6.5 percent
Price:
$8 / six-pack
