Winter has arrived, it’s become bloody cold. You spend the evenings huddled around the heater, spooning a 15 year old hot water bottle or wrapped up in so many blankets it will take you 20 minutes to get out. And with all of this comes a change in brew tastes. Winter is for the dark and heavy brews. It’s no time for Lagers. It’s times for Porters, Stouts, anything brewed in a barrel and, well, this. This being the newly released seasonal Camelthorn Brewing Urbock!
We were pretty stoked to come home to a little goody bag from the brewery a couple of days ago. Complete with a Camelthorn Brewing glass and some winter chocs, it was a nice drop to get. Previously the Urbock was a stand alone in the Namibian Breweries stable but has now found a home under the Camelthorn brand. And, alongside the Weiss and Helles, fits in nicely.

We had a sneak peak of the beer last week and we really enjoyed it. It’s a rich malty beer, full of body with a very subtle kick that will give you that winter warmth you’re looking for. The label states:
A traditional bock beer, brewed with the finest Munich Malt. It has a distinctive deep red glow and malty flavours, making Camelthorn Urbock perfect for a chilly evening.
