Exit 12 Maibock

Here we celebrate spring at Exit 12, a place where many German immigrants settled in the 19th and 20th centuries.  German beer cultur always celebrates the season with a Maibock – a beer that balances the richness of winter beers with the lightness of warmer weather offerings.  Our version is a rich, full-bodied straw colored lager showcasing pilsner malt and German noble hops.  Malt flavors and aromas predominate while the hops add spicy overtones, but little bitterness.
