LAS VEGAS – Las Vegas craft beer fanatics can experience a never-before-tasted seasonal from Sin City Brewing Co. as the local brewery debuts its first-ever Maibock draft May 5. The Maibock is the latest brew of a series of high-alcohol seasonals Sin City plans to unveil this year and will be available at its locations on Las Vegas Boulevard at Harmon Corner and Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian.
“I’ve noticed that nowadays when people order seasonal beers, they want that extra oomph! Our Maibock is like an amber lager on steroids,” said Sin City’s Master Brewer Rich Johnson. “It is strong, but not hoppy at all. So guests will enjoy a very smooth, malty and balanced beer that packs a punch.”
Sin City’s Maibock is 7.2 percent ABV, 25 IBU, and boasts a beautiful amber hue. Bock beers are stronger versions of classic German lagers, usually brewed for the separate seasons, “Mai” meaning the month of May in German. The Maibock was historically used as a source of nutrition for Bavarian monks during times of fasting. Sin City’s Maibock will be available on tap through June.
