Ramstein's summer bock returns for 2014

High Point Brewing is bringing its Ramstein summer bock back around for a fourth year.

The 7% ABV, draft-only beer goes on tap at the Butler brewery’s tasting room on Saturday.

It’s a limited-run beer; only a single 30-barrel tank was brewed of what High Point owner Greg Zaccardi describes as “a juicy, supercharged blonde bock.”

The beer has its roots in Ramstein Double Platinum Blonde, High Point’s ramped-up 7% hefeweizen. Some production constraints forced some brew-day changes, and the summer bock was born. It’s now brewed from an almost entirely pilsner and vienna malt bill, with a dash of wheat.

The beer quickly found favor among the brewery’s followers.

“I think it’s a delicious representation of the style, with our own little spin on it,” Greg tells Beer-Stained Letter. “When we did it the first time, we didn’t know what to expect … The great advantage of having a (tasting room) bar is people come in and tell you right away. They may flatter you with words, but he truth is really shown in their purchase habits.”
