    I love the history behind brews, and the doppelbock is no different. I think Salvator’s version is delicious. It’s been a while, but I distinctly recall cherries as well.

    Nice pics. You must have a good camera.

      it’s a point and shoot, $200 camera. Seems to work pretty well once I figured out how to manipulate it into submission.

      I look forward to Doppelbock season. Love the big malty lagers.

    Peter: First off , Nice review. I didn’t know the history behind this style of beer and now I do. I always appreciate that. You mentioned that this beer used to be heavier. Do you think that is just the variation that happens from year to year, or do you think they have manipulated it to better fit with today’s marketplace?

    • Simply Beer says:

      Don, thanks. Hard to say, I just remember this beer being darker many years ago. Not sure if the flavor has changed much, but it could just be a difference in grain availablity or change in brewers or marketing. Who knows, but if someone does I would love to know.

  3. Just did my weekly beer and cheese pairing. I chose Robusto (7 month Gouda) with Ayinger’s Celebrator. Celebrator has to be one of the best ones I’ve had. I like this one, too. But I made a pretty authentic one last year and plan on making one this year.

    • Simply Beer says:

      No doubt! IMO, Ayinger’s Celebrator is the gold standard. Is actually a beer staple (one I always have on hand) for me. (i also like the goat necklace)

    Point and shoot? I’m surprised. I am camera-less right now.

    I’m with you guys on the celebrator. Gold standard is a good way of putting it. My kids always try to talk me into buying it at the store for the goat necklace.

    I’m sticking with Doppelbocks… I had a Triple Bock last night that I couldn’t pour down the drain quickly enough!!!

    I’m going to give Victory’s St. Victorious a shot tonight… I hear that’s a good one…
