Gordon Biersch Debuts Maibock

Gordon Biersch Brewing released the first brew of the seasonal "Maibock" beer. Literally translated from German, Maibock means "the beer of May," and is one of Gordon Biersch's four seasonal brews. The beer achieves a richy, malty flavor from dark-roasted caramel malt, and was originally brewed in Einbeck, Germany during the 14th century. It became such a favorite in Bavaria that a brewer from Einbeck was persuaded to move to Bavaria to brew the beer, and it was popularized from there.

Dan Gordon, co-founder, highlighted, "This Maibock beer style was the inspirational beer behind my motivation to pursue becoming a German-trained brewing engineer. It was when I was an exchange student drinking this beer in Northern Germany that I made the decision to study brewing engineering at the Technical University of Munich, Weihenstephan. Without Maibock, there wouldn't have been a Gordon Biersch."

Maibock's hearty flavor beautifully complements robust flavors, such as Gordon Biersch's suggested Beer-Braised Beef Stew. Its rich flavor from the dark-roasted caramel malt complements the moderate level of bitterness (25 IBU) to create a perfectly balanced beer.

Maibock is available February through April in both 6-packs and as a part of the Gordon Biersch Spring Variety 12- and 24-packs. It can be found in retailers in California, Hawaii, Arizona, Nevada, Alabama, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Florida, Maryland, Washington D.C., North Carolina, Georgia, Ohio, and Virginia.
