The Hofstetten brewery has a passion for time-honored brewing traditions and brews many of its beers in a brewhouse that’s almost 100 years old. In addition, brewers like to use traditional ingredients such as historic grains or hops and brew using techniques that have been passed down from brewer to brewer for generations. One of these special techniques is brewing with granite. However, the stones are not among the raw materials for the beer, but are used to refine the beer.
The fine granite bock is fermented in 120-year-old granite vats, which give the brew some history and flavor. In addition, it is treated with hot blocks of granite. The stones are heated in the embers of a wood fire and dipped into the beer using heavy iron tongs. In this process, the sugar in the wort caramelizes on the glowing stones and gives the drink a wonderfully full-bodied caramel note. The brewing process is then completed and over the course of the subsequent six-month storage period, a wonderfully intense bock is created, which inspires with its intensity of taste and the density of soft, sweet aromas.
The Hofstettener Granitbock flows into the glass in a bright copper red and is crowned with a good amount of ivory-colored foam. Strong roasted aromas, hints of chocolate, creamy caramel and spicy malt characterize the smell and taste.
