Located in Detroit's historic Rivertown district, and housed in a 1919 factory warehouse, Atwater Brewery was founded in March of 1997 with the purpose of carrying on the rich history of breweries in Detroit. Our brewing process, however, is over 200 years old. Our imported Kasper Schultz brew house allows us to brew our brands in the true heritage-style of traditional German lagers. And, when we say, "imported brew house," we mean it! All of our main brewing equipment was brought in from Germany, where precision and passion for beer has its roots. In fact, when we have service calls on our equipment, we call in the Germans!
The Maibock or Helles Bock is the "lightest" version of the Bock style. These beers still get into the 6% plus abv range, but they are not quite as complex and intense in malt character as the Traditional Bocks. Maibocks (or "May Bocks") are often thought of as Spring fest types of beer and are a more recent development in the Bock family than the other styles. They can be a little bit hoppier (bitter) and are still rich in malt flavor, but not usually so much as other Bock beers.
