Ever wondered what drove Norse warriors berserk? In their day, the Berserkers drank a potent elixir of herbs before a battle. Today, we might fuel up with coffee on a busy day, or relax after one with beer. Berserker Bock is the culmination of two masters of each trade, with Sixpoint teaming up with Stumptown Coffee Roasters to create a coffee bock lager. Choosing to cold-brew the coffee beans sourced by Stumptown’s Duane Sorenson, the brewers also cold-fermented the beer for a truly unique, smooth-tasting coffee-flavored bock.
