As Patrick already posted on his blog…. The “bokbier” is back again and it tastes this year so very good again!!!
It is always a surprise again how the “bokbier” is every year again. And yes, it can really differ per year. But this year it is as I already said, very good again.
And another nice thing is that the local market has a real nice offer on it. 2 Sixpacks for just €6.00!
BTW “bok-bier” has nothing to do with a “bok” (which is the Dutch name for a male goat). It is strong malty lager beer of German origin. The Bavarians of Munich pronounced “Einbeck” as “ein Bock”, and thus the beer became known as “bock”.
Most Dutch breweries have their own “bokbier”, but I think Grolsch Autumn bokbier beats them all.
