Unpasteurized and unfiltered, strong, dark, and very tasty, but so easy to drink.
The tiny brewery in beautiful, historic Bamberg is an offshoot of one of the city's best pubs. The Mahr's "gasthaus" - built in 1670 - is one of the great places in the world to have a beer, and the beer is some of the best you will find in Germany. Mahr's is a rare example of artisanal brewing in a land that is lately beset by increased mass production, consolidation, and narrowing of popular tastes.
Weisse Bock is an increasingly popular style that is strong and very tasty - with all of the fruity, spicy flavors one expects from a wheat beer, and more - but never too heavy on the palate. This rich, dark, and enthralling Bock is refreshing and drinks so easily that one would never suspect that it weighs in at 7.2% a.b.v. If you appreciate Aventinus, try Der Weisse Bock. We think that an unpasteurized, unfiltered beer is just better.
This Weisse Bock carries forward the splendid tradition of the first brewers of the town - the monks of the local abbey. The monks brewed their strong Bock especially for Lent, when an especially sustaining brew was needed to see them through the traditional fast. Mahr's Der Weisse Bock is now available year 'round.
