Stone Hound Brewing's Devil's Dive Doppelbock

Bottoms Up
By Craig Manning | March 23, 2024

Legend has it that this German beer style originated in the 17th century by Berlin monks, who relied on the dark, full-bodied brew to sustain them through the fasts of Lent season. Some reports say that the monks even gave the beer the nickname of “liquid bread.” To this day, you’ll see doppelbocks crop up on tap lists around Mardi Gras or during Lent, and we can’t complain! Stone Hound’s Devil’s Dive Doppelbock—named after a big hill on Old Mission Peninsula—is the perfect example of the form. It’s a hefty, dark German lager with a boozy 8.2 percent ABV and a flavor smorgasbord packed with hints of bread, hazelnut, caramel, vanilla, figs, dark cherries, and toasted oak. Grab a pint at 3593 Bunker Hill Rd. in Williamsburg. stonehoundbrewing.com
