New beer from Tree Brewing

March 25, 2010

It’s called Captivator Doppelbock. What I know is,

“our Captivator Dobbelbock will be in warehouses today and stores in Alberta and private liquor stores in BC will start recieiving delivery next week. Or you can come get some at our brewery today”

March 24, 2010 (Kelowna, BC) – Kelowna-based Tree Brewing brings a new seasonal release to private liquor store shelves in BC and Alberta this month. Often referred to as ‘liquid bread’ because of its nutrient rich and hearty composition, the Captivator Doppelbock is reminiscent of a beer traditionally brewed by monks during Lent.

Doppelbock emerged in the late eighteenth century as a powerful lager variant of the old monastic strong beer. Living by the strict rules of their order, the monks engaged in periodic bouts of fasting when no solid food was allowed to pass their lips, the longest being Lent. The monks believed that liquids not only cleansed the body but also the soul, so they made plenty of liquid from their grain and got their nutrients from drinking it.

“It seems fitting to release our Doppelbock this week, as Lent comes to a close,” said Tree’s award-winning Brewmaster, Stefan Buhl. “Captivator has a clean, smooth finish that we think would have served the monks well.”

The Captivator Doppelbock offers a sweet aroma with hints of toffee, light caramel and hazelnut. Unpasteurized and free of preservatives, it has a characteristic dark reddish hue. As a limited edition seasonal brew, Captivator will be available starting this week in 650 ml bottles.

    • Thanks Chris!

      I tried to find some in Vernon yesterday, but no luck. I guess I’ll have to wait until the 9th when I come the brewery for a tour.

  2. Dave – we look forward to seeing you at the brewery – but if you can’t wait until then to try our Doppelbock Village Green and Vernon Square Liquor stores both said they would order it this week, could be in before the weekend, likely next week.
