Dark Horse – Perkulator Coffee Dopplebock

This is a true dopplebock and Dark Horse Brewing’s only publicly distributed lager. It was so normal that we couldn’t stand it so we made it into a coffee dopplebock. Ha, take that Germany, with your Reinheitsgebot purity law! Anyway, we use fare trade organic coffee from our friends at The Ugly Mug Cafe in Ypsilanti, MI

We did a lable contest and opened it up to the public for this beer. We had so many awesome entries that we couldn’t just pick one winner so we have 2 lables for this beer. We stager the bottles in the six packs but with no order in mind.

Starr Hill – Snow blind – doppelbock

Starr Hill’s Snow Blind Doppelbock Lager is a full-bodied winter seasonal brew. Its massive caramel aroma belies its fresh and lightly toasted malt flavor. Sweetness dominates the front of the pallet while the beer finishes with a neutral lager taste that is clean and crisp. Snow Blind is smooth and will keep you warm throughout the winter months.
