No less than the strongest beer in the world is the goal of the ambitious brewer, who has been head-to-head with the Scots from Brewdog since the release of his first high-proof beer. After a lot of back and forth and the launch of some excellent spirits, Georg Tscheuschner and his Schorschbock 57% are unbeaten at the top. The delicious creation of the down-to-earth brewer is the soul of Franconia captured in a wonderfully dark beer pleasure.
Hops, malt and a lot of skill
The Schorschbräu brewery is a small brewery based in the Franconian Lake District. Master brewer and head behind Schorschbock Georg “Schorsch” Tscheuschner has clearly focused on the production of strong beers that are not only extremely alcoholic but also true taste bombs. With special yeasts, a lot of malt and at least four months of storage, a very high alcohol content is achieved in the creations. The beers are so extraordinary and varied that it is hard to believe that they were brewed strictly according to the Purity Law. Only water, hops, malt and yeast find their way into the boiler. Under Georg's expert hands and with craftsmanship precision and even more passion for brewing, these simple ingredients are then used to create hits like Schorschweizen 13 , Schorschbock Ice 13 or the World's Strongest Lager , which come in an elegant clay bottle with a swing top. The Eisbock is a specialty that has a long tradition in Franconia. To make the beer even more substantial, water is removed from the beer in a special cooling process. So the aromas multiply and the alcohol content rises to the sky.
Schorschbock - Not a snack in between
Anyone who thinks that they can exen a bottle of Schorschbock to harmonize the evening, should think twice about the whole thing. With the amount of revolutions, the evening afterwards may be over right away, and you will probably miss the many facets of the taste. Schorschbräu recommends that all customers take small sips to enjoy the very dark beers. It is best to choose a small, bulbous glass for tasting. Like good wine, the rascal should breathe briefly so that the complex worlds of taste have time to fully develop. This is the best way to taste the full range of flavors and not take on the heavyweights straight away. The high alcohol content also ensures that the beer will stay open for several weeks, so no need to rush! We recommend Georg's fiery-dark, fruity-malty works of art to everyone who likes to challenge their beer taste or who just want to discover something new.
In any case, none of Georg's exquisite creations is as easy to drink as a light pilsner. But who wants that?
