REAL BEER - August 2013

Red Oak is North America’s Largest Lager only Craft Brewery. We concentrate on doing a few Bavarian Style Lagers well. One of the most difficult to brew is HumminBird Helles [Hell means light in German]. A Helles is one of the best selling beers in Bavaria and one of the Brew Crew’s favorites. Why? It’s Pleasing Taste! Remember the lighter the beer the more difficult it is to brew and age. The situation is similar to modern architecture where it is hard to design a building with great proportions and very few lines. Simple is difficult… that’s why there is a lot more room to cover over mistakes in heavy beers. It is hard to brew a Naturally Carbonated, Preservative Free Helles where the Malted Barley and Aroma Hops are in perfect balance… but the result is Beautiful!

Bock Beers

Bock Beers, first brewed in the 14th Century by Bavarian Monasteries, are well known for their rich, smooth, flavorful taste. Our Battlefield Bock has been a favorite for years. This past year our seasonal bocks were so well received that they sold out in as little as 3 weeks. To meet the increased demand for bock beer and provide greater variety for bock fans…Red Oak will begin brewing small batches of slow cold-aged Old Oak, Black Oak, Big Oak and Battlefield Bock year around.
