Episode #101 – Heinzelmännchen Brewery – Maibock Not Yours

We recently had chance to visit the Heinzelmännchen Brewery in Sylva to chat with Dieter Kuhn and we brought home some of their “Maibock Not Yours” to review and we are happy to do that today! The Maibock Not Yours is “a stronger version of an Oktoberfest – brewed with Munich & Vienna malts” which reportedly makes this one malty smooth with balanced hops and an 8% ABV. All the beers at Heinzelmännchen Brewery are keg conditioned and non-filtered, making them smooth and lighter in body. By the way, Heinzelmännchen are gnome-like creatures found in the Black Forest of Germany, rarely seen and always helpful to creatures and people alike. Will the gnometown brewery Maibock meet the test? Let’s see.
