Join us for the return of Hofbrau's Maibock! Last April we had such a great response at Molly Brannigan's we thought it was time for it to re-appear at Erie Beer Society. Hofbrau's Maibock is primarily a malty beer from the German brewing tradition with little hop character - neither bitter nor aromatic - though the style typically has a little more hops than the standard Bock. The color is golden to light brown or amber.Beifall! (That's "Cheers" in German) JeffSee More
