Bock Fest at K Point Brewing
March 26, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm
In homage to the great Bock Fest held by Schell’s Brewery for over 30 years, K Point Brewing is bringing their own version to Eau Claire. A batch of Doppelbock will be tapped for the event, plus smoked turkey legs and brats available to nosh on.
Who knows the true genesis of beer poking, but in winter climates, gathering around a bonfire for a warm, poked beer revitalizes the spirit. The idea of warming a beer with a hot poker is likely a German creation and there are a handful of breweries in the US keeping the tradition alive. Because a bock has a higher sugar content to react with the heat, the bock fizzles and froths up a bit and changes the composition. It develops depth in flavor, caramelizing the malt and imparting a smoky character while giving the beer a creamy mouthfeel.
Dress warm, grab a mug of bock and get poked at K Point!
