Our Weizen Dopplebock is dominated with 60% wheat that imparts a nutty-bisquit flavour. It is complimented with Perle and Hersbrucker hops for a nice sweet finish. Our biggest beer yet. Prost!
Brewer: Atwater Brewing

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!
Though sometimes referred to as wheat Doppelbocks, Weizenbocks are not all that closely related to actual Bock beers. Weizenbocks are ales while Bock beers are lagers. The use of ale yeast is important to creating the fruity flavors that are characteristic of this style, while lager yeast are used in Bock beers to create cleaner, less fruity flavors. The term bock or Doppelbock in the context of these beers is a reference to their alcoholic strength.
