SEATTLE—Ayinger Brewery & Merchant du Vin are excited to announce the limited release of a rich, bold, inviting spring seasonal beer: Ayinger Maibock, available on draft only starting in early April 2015. There is only one shipment: when it’s gone, it’s gone! Locate a bar or restaurant near you serving Maibock via the “Find Our Beer” feature at merchantduvin.com.
Ayinger Maibock, a Bavarian Spring Celebration beer brewed in the fall and lagered over the winter, offers a full, malty body with spicy, aristocratic Hallertauer hops in abundance. Clean lager fermentation means that every nuance of flavor and the signature Ayinger malty elegance are crafted into a beautiful example of brewing artistry. Maibock will remind you that big beers can be elegant, that barley is the heart of great beer, and that some of the best beers anywhere are brewed at a Bavarian village in the foothills of the Alps. ABV: 7.5% IBU: 30 OG: 1.066
Nestled in the pastoral Bavarian countryside 25 kilometers outside Munich is the beautiful village of Aying, home of the family-owned Ayinger Brewery (pronounced Eye-ing-gr).
