Scratch #174 represents our take on the Weizenbock, an artful union of three different beer styles: the Hefeweizen, Dunkelweizen, and Bock. Traditionally, Weizenbocks are thicker, stronger, and often darker than typical wheat beers, yet they maintain some of the refreshing characteristics most wheat beers exhibit. The combination of wheat and barley-based malts elicits complex notes of toasted grains and fresh baked bread, while the darker malts suggest stone fruit, vanilla, molasses, and caramel. Despite its chewy, robust mouthfeel, Scratch #174 delivers a rich, satisfying finish. With the subzero temperatures we’ve been experiencing recently, it will thaw you from the inside out and leave you feeling warm and tingly!
