    I'll agree with Shiner Bock, but even Stroh's Bock back in the day wasn't bad.

    I still have some White Ale and Black Lager to finish. I also got some Irish Red for St. Paddy's day.

    Actually that brings up a question, are red beers actually of Irish origin? Is this still common on the Old Sod?
    George Killian Lett was a defunct brewery in Ireland and they did in fact brew a red colored ale. Coors bought out the brewery name awhile back and now brew a tasty and drinkable red colored lager.

    I'm not sure if there are any red lagers or ales currently being brewed on the "Old Sod." It wouldn't surprise me though.

    Samuel Adams Imperial Bock Beer rates right up there with the very best bock beers from Germany, but there are other beers of merit on this side of the Atlantic. Schell Dopplebock is another one of them.

    What say you?..

    Why, I'll bet you guys change your socks every day too.
    I'll bet you a wham-o superball, that Otis never drank a bock.

    No, but I'm sure that he drank after-shave and furniture polish.

    Great Lakes Brewing Co. in Ohio has this:
    Glockenspiel
    A complex, plum-colored Weizenbock with spicy notes of clove and banana.
    But that won't be available until May.
    They also have other Bocks on tap, but you would have to visit us here in Ohio to taste them!

    Right now they have this:
    Conway's Irish Ale
    A malty Irish Ale with a notable toasty flavor derived from lightly roasted malt.

    I am not saying better, so much as something else that is good to drink. You wouldn't eat Taco Bell for every meal, would you? Actually, don't answer that. Just trust me, look for a Shiner Bock next time you go to the packi store.

    Trappist beers deserve a chapter wholely unto themselves. Absolutely marvelous and truly flavorful beers! Bock beers are traditionally a very strong lager, not an ale.
