Rahr's Bucking Bock: Drink it While You Can

Rahr's Bucking Bock: Drink it While You Can

I'm trying not to obsess, but it seems like every day feels a little warmer than the last. The climbing mercury is making me want to grab onto the last days of spring and hang on as tightly as I can. And there's other signs of the season slipping away. Like Rahr Brewery's spring Bucking Bock, a beer I fell in love with while enjoying a cool breeze at The Porch.

"You've got about two more weeks," Melissia Simmons told me when I asked her where else I could enjoy the golden hoppy brew. Simmons says the beer takes eight weeks to brew so they made a ton of it to make sure they don't run out. "There's a good bit of it laying around," she added.

The 7.5 percent ABV brew is a German-style maibock traditionally brewed in late fall to be cellared and enjoyed in the spring. The beer is light tasting and drinkable with a light head and a slightly malty flavor. Simmons tells me it will soon be replaced at most bars with a summer rotator from the brewery.

Want to take a pint for a test drive? Tonight, the Ginger Man will be holding a Bucking Bock glass night -- buy a beer, take home a tankard. The following locations also still have it on tap. Drink the last of spring while you still can.
