As part of their 20th anniversary of brewing award winning lagers, Sudwerk is introducing the S-series of limited release beers. Their first release will be a Dunkel Weiss Bock, which is also their first high octane beer topping out at 8% abv. Sudwerk is describing it as smooth and well-balanced, with the yeast and wheat character of a Hefeweizen, the malty richness of a Dunkel, and the strength of a Bock. Since Sudwerk is one of the best damn producers of German-style beer this side of Munich, I am eagerly waiting to try this out. Release is extremely limited, so don’t dilly dally on this if you want to try it. This beer will be like hossenfeffer; hare today and gone tomorrow.
The official release party, and the kickoff party for their year-long anniversary celebration, is this Thursday at The Davis Graduate. For those who only remember the Grad for the big burger and the bigger TV, it behooves you to know that they have one of the largest selections of craft beer in the Sacramento area with an emphasis on California craft beers.
The Grad will pour the Dunkel Weiss Bock, Hefeweizen and Dopplebock starting at 6:00pm, with a free Sudwerk pint glass to the first 72 patrons . See you there?
