Monks had fasting figured out. No food? No problem. Just drink a Double Bock. Thick and chewy with intense notes of caramel, chocolate and dried stone fruit, ‘Nator (as we call him) serves as a tribute to this liquid bread style. Known to monastic brewers as “liquid bread”, a double bock with a strong malt aroma and chewy rich body.

TBBC-Logo-2019Hazy Pale Ale | 5.5% ABV

This hazy-take on Reef Donkey has been dry-hopped with over 3lb per barrel of the far-out Galaxy hop.

It’s an uncomplicated formula with smashing results!
