This is a rich, dark beer, inspired by the beers, called double bocks, traditionally brewed by Bavarian monks during the winter months.
Josephsbrau Winter Brew is a double bock that's a wintertime favorite here at Trader Joe's. This is a beer that's all about malt. In fact, there's double the amount of malt used in this beer when compared to a classic pilsner. High percentages of imported dark roasted Munich and caramel malts give this beer a fragrant malt aroma. And we use only the finest Hallertau hops imported from Bavaria, so your dark double bock experience can be as authentic as possible – whether you follow the monks' lead by cloistering yourselves and fasting is entirely up to you.
We're selling Winter Brew in a six pack of 12 ounce bottles for the festive price of $5.99* plus deposit where applicable.
