RedRock Franconian Rauchbier

Fans of Smoked lagers rejoice! RedRock Brewing Company is looking to bring a little bit of Bamburg, Germany to your fridge and favorite watering hole.

The Franconian Rauchbier will be a classic take on the German style Rauchbiers (Smoke Beer). Rauchbiers are typically dark in color and are similar to Oktoberfestbiers in sweetness. This beer will be made with birch wood smoked malts, that will give the lager a toasted grain and bacon like aroma. Imagine a smokiness so robust, so assertive, that it takes on the caracter of barbecue.

The Franconian will come in at 5.7% ABV and will be packaged in RedRock's German inspired 500ml bottles. We'll spread the word as it's release date draws near.

Prost!

I love the brewpub version, although I could swear they changed the recipe around 2010-2011. Can't wait!
