  • Friday, January 31st. Früh Bock Beer Release. Olde Mecklenburg Brewery. 11 am-11 pm. For your drinking pleasure, we are releasing Früh Bock this FRIDAY, JANUARY 31st!“Früh” (pronounced “froo”) means “early” in German. Our seasonal “Early Bock” combines a slight malty sweetness with a refreshing touch of citrus aroma from its noble Bavarian hops. The result is an amazingly fresh, crisp beer that masks a higher alcohol content in its smooth character. Big bodied and warm enough for chilly evenings, but bright and aroma-hop forward enough to compliment beers on the patio.

    Like all OMB beers, Früh Bock is all-natural — brewed in strict accordance with the famous German beer purity law of 1516: the “Reinheitsgebot.” In line with Reinheitsgebot, it was brewed using natural carbonation from the pure CO2 produced by the yeast during fermentation. We pull our brews from our lager tanks weekly, so you know it’s fresh. And, it was kept cold from production to delivery to you, because all beer should be kept cold to maximize freshness. We hope you enjoy this pure, fresh, cold beer. Prost!

    Under 21 welcome at OMB. Pets welcome outside in our Biergarten.
