Ramstein Unveils Their 2010 Eisbock

highpointIt finally has become cold enough for High Point Brewing to make their annual Eisbock.  Each year High Point’s Greg Zaccardi takes their 9% abv Ramstein Winter Wheat and transforms it into a  velvety silky smooth 11.5% Eisbock.  A couple weeks ago, Butler New Jersey finally had a cold streak of 20° weather and they were able to produce a very limited quantity of their locally famous Eisbock.  As of Wednesday afternoon, the Ramstein Eisbock is on tap for Growler fills at the brewery.

    That’s interesting. I enjoyed their Winter Wheat, but this sounds amazing! So, do they do this outside or something? I’m curious why does it have to be so cold to make this particular batch?

    Eisbock, is basically freezing a % of water from the beer to make a more lush(in theory) and higher abv beer. It is also know as Freeze Distillation, the way Tactical Nuclear Penguin was made.
