Since late 2012, Saint Arnold Brewing Co. has released eight different incarnation of its Bishop’s Barrel series, which are beers "that have been aged in barrels specifically chosen to enhance and complement the characteristics of the underlying beers." The Bishop’s Barrel beers are some of the Houston, Texas-based brewery's most popular creations and are only available in bars and restaurants throughout Texas and Louisiana.
Released on June 20, 2014, Doppel Dinkel Bock is a collaboration between Bend, Ore.-based Deschutes Brewery and German brewer, Distelhäuser Brauerei. Coming in at 10.5 percent ABV, the weizenbock-style beer uses a traditional German ale yeast while incorporating chocolate wheat, carared malt and pilsner malts as well as bravo, US Tettnang and citra hops. In addition, it replaces the wheat malt that is traditionally used with a "generous" amount of dinkel— or spelt — malt.
