Bock Damm 
Posted: 6 July 2015  Beer Republic 7.5 
Bock Damm from Spain Bock Damm adheres to the bock customs.  The cute billy goat shows up on the bottle. This bock was refreshing and went down the gullet very fast, possibly because it came in an extra small 250 ml bottle.        
Avg price/liter: USD 5.36   ABV %: 5.4  Type: Lager   
       


A bock, in case you don't know, is a strong lager, usually dark, originally from Germany.  It was first brewed in the 14th century in the town of Einbeck.  Three centuries later, brewers in Munich (Bavaria) started brewing this beer style.  Differences in the Bavarian accent made Einbeck sound like ein Bock, which means a billy goat in English.  A new style name was born and a cute animal which people could eat with the beer became the style's mascot.      

Bock Damm adheres to the bock customs.  The adorable billy goat shows up on the bottle.  The bottle is dark.  Damm also lets you know on the bottle, in Spanish, that this is a "Black Munich."  Damm claims on their dedicated Bock Damm web site that this beer's recipe originates in Munich in 1888.            

Traditional bocks are over 6%, possibly 7%.  Damm keeps it light.  After all, this is supposed to be a Mediterranean bock beer, is it not?        

This bock was refreshing and went down the gullet very fast, possibly because it came in an extra small 250 ml bottle.
