Trader Joe’s Hofbrau Bock

Trader Joes Hofbrau BockI came home with a raging headache tonight. Nothing that a couple of beers and some Indian food couldn’t cure. Watching the movie Space Cowboys and chilling with the wife. My beer of choice this evening is Trader Joe’s Hofbrau Bock. I scored a six-pack of this stuff helping someone move this past weekend. The move was super-easy, so getting beer out of the deal was pretty sweet.

Speaking of sweet, this Hofbrau Bock is super-malty-delicious. It is completely dominated by honey flavor. This is such an easy drinker…you could really get into trouble with it given that it’s 7% ABV.

In addition to tasting like you’re licking a honey-comb, its color is very similar to honey. I had to pour it vigorously to get any decent head. It withered away quickly leaving zero lacing.

There isn’t much more to say about the Hofbrau Bock. An all around yummy beer. I might just have a couple more of these tonight.

  1. I just brewed up a batch of American Wheat that I added about 2 pounds of honey to. I'm really curious as to what it is going to taste like. When I put it into the fermenter it looked a lot like what you have your picture. I haven't had many bocks in my day. Is a bock for of just malts and a lot less hoppiness?

    I really enjoy reading your post. I'm not from Boston, but I'm curious as to what the beer tweet up is going to consist of?

    Keep up the great reviews.

  2. In typical Lost fashion, I have no idea what a bock actually is. :)

    The tweetup is just a gathering of people who like beer. We're gonna get together and socialize. Good beer will be on tap. That's about it!

  3. That's pretty sweet. I always thought a tweetup put a bunch of people in a similar place to chat and tweet about chatting lol. Sounds kind of stupid now that I think of it. Your definition sounds much more appealing. It kind of sounds like a "tasting" but I bet is more about hanging out and doing whatever than it is about trying bunches of beers with lil sippy cups.

    Thanks for the info! I'm not exactly sure what a bock is either. I think it is just something super malty. I could be wrong though!
