Beer Description

We used recipe details from a number of period sources, putting together a slightly modernized version, following tradition as much as possible. Berghoff Stock Ale uses the classic combination of lager, caramel and black malts along with some Belgian brewer’s brown sugar to lighten the body a little to improve drinkability. It is then hopped up to a respectably high level with the original American hop, Cluster. Finally, East Kent Goldings and Hallertau Hersbrucker hops give it a unique old-school aroma. Fermentation is done with an ale yeast and in the presence of toasted oak, which adds a little soft vanilla aroma and a nice, crisp, slightly tannic finish.
