...again a little bit more about the BOKBIERDAG.
You could all ready see a few photo's last
Wordless Wednesday, but for what I saw
this week I wanted to make a little sketch of the
real BOKbierdag! The only thing I'm not so happy
with this (quick) sketch is the wheels of the wagon.
Some history about the Bockbeer:
The style known now as bock was a dark, malty,
lightly-hopped ale first brewed in the 14th century
by German brewers in the Hanseatic town of Einbeck.
The style from Einbeck was later adopted by Munich
brewers in the 17th century and adapted to the new
lager style of brewing. The Bavarians of Munich pronounced
"Einbeck" as "ein Bock" ("a billy goat"), and thus the beer became
known as "bock". To this day, as a visual pun, a goat
often appears on bock labels. Bock is historically associated
with special occasions, often religious festivals such
as Christmas, Easter or Lent. Bocks have a long history
of being brewed and consumed by Bavarian monks as a
source of nutrition during times of fasting.
