This week I take a taste of Crawford Bock from Karbach Brewing Company in Houston Texas.
Crawford Bock pours a clear amber color with a finger width foamy head. Head retention is good. The lacing is very good. The beer has a toasted grain aroma with some bready maltiness.
This bock has a bready taste with toasted grains. A hint of caramel. No different from the aroma. The taste is very light-bodied with moderate carbonation. Would drink on a hot day around the pool.
“What’s even easier than jacking a dinger into the Crawford Boxes? How about cracking open a delicious Crawford Bock? Karbach Crawford Bock is so smooth you can easily stretch that single into a double. Pairs perfectly with peanuts, stadium dogs, and a good 7th inning stretch!
A portion of proceeds from every Crawford Bock go to the Astros Foundation!”
The philosophy of Karbach Brewing Company is Craft beer should be for everyone. They see craft beer as beer for the masses and not solely in the realm of beer snobs. Karbach Brewing wants to brew great beer for everyone and have a damn good time doing it. They say “Just ask and you will receive.”
Karbach Brewing Company is very active in the community and has a weekly running club and monthly motorcycle cruises.
If you are a fan of the Astros, Crawford Bock is for you. This is a beer perfect for enjoying gat a game or out by the pool in the Texas summer. This is a very drinkable beer. It is a little thinner in the body than I like, but I will be back to it in the hot weather. At 4.5% ABV, you can get a few of these done by the 7th inning and fall over when you stand up for the stretch. The brewery says pair Crawford Bock with ballpark hot dogs, Cracker Jacks, and peanuts. I would add to that list cheeseburger, Frito pie, and barbeque.
