“Rock and Roll” may have been coined in Cleveland, but the influence of this genre reaches far beyond the shores of Lake Erie. The Doppelrock bears witness to everything double: double bock flavor, dueling rockers and the double neck guitar made famous by many rock legends.
Their doppelbock (German for “double bock”) celebrates the style originally developed by medieval monks. Living by the strict rules of their order, monks were regularly required to castigate themselves by periodic bouts of fasting, when next-to-no solid food was allowed to pass their lips. The longest and most taxing of these periods of culinary abstinence was, of course, Lent—the 46 days between Ash Wednesday and Easter Sunday. Because the monks believed that liquids not only cleansed the body but also the soul, they would make plenty of “liquid bread” instead of solid bread from their grain and then drink it in copious quantities… the more, the holier.
They’ll be doing 16oz draft pours for $6 and will surely come up with a cigar special as well. Don’t forget Gift Cards are available which is great for the person receiving as well.
