Amsterdam Brewing Co. Releases Spring Seasonal Beer - ‘Spring Bock’

Toronto, ON

The Amsterdam Brewing Company, one of Toronto’s oldest independently owned and operated craft brewery, has released their spring seasonal beer Spring Bock. Amsterdam’s Spring Bock was the first seasonal offering by Amsterdam to be accepted in the LCBO in 2011 and is back again in LCBOs across Ontario for the 2012 spring beer release.

“We were really excited about the response to Spring Bock in 2011.” says media and marketing contact, Blake van Delft. “6,000 Liters sold out in only a couple of weeks, so we made sure to brew more this year. It’s a style that ages really well in the cellar too, so if you’re planning on picking up a couple of bottles, put one away for a few months (or a year if you can) to compare flavours.”

Originally brewed only in monasteries for consumption during Lent, bock beers are the richest, creamiest, and most full-bodied beers in the world. Because of their high food energy and nutritional content, bock beer provided sustenance to monks who were required to fast for over 40 days and nights. If there was one beer you could literally live off of, this would be it. Fermented with a house strain of Danish yeast and aged three times longer than other beers, Amsterdam Spring Bock is a seasonal brew you do not want to miss out on.

To celebrate the spring brewing season, Amsterdam is hosting an event called “Rock Out With Your Bock Out” at the brewery this Wednesday, February 22nd from 5:30-8:30pm that will feature Spring Bock samples and food from Grindhouse. All are welcome!

Amsterdam Spring Bock (7% ABV.) is available for sale in 500mL bottles from select LCBOs ($3.95, Product #208942), the Amsterdam Retail Store (21 Bathurst St., 416-504-6882) and on tap at fine bars and restaurants. Amsterdam brews its seasonal beers in small batches so Spring Bock will only be available while supplies last. For updates on quantities, please visit Amsterdam’s twitter page (www.twitter.com.amsterdambeer) or facebook page (www.facebook.com/amsterdambeer) where they will be posting updates on remaining volumes.
