Day 110 Drink: Merkendorf Raucherator Doppelbock

Brauerei Hummel is located in Memmelsdorf-Merkendorf, Germany, 6 miles outside of the city of Bamberg where they know a thing or two about making smoke beer.

The brewery has been around since 1846 and operates a restaurant where you can taste fresh beer and eat Franconian-style meals. The brewery makes a range of beers, including rauch styles that have made the area famous among beer drinkers.

Merkendorf Raucherator Doppelbock is a mahogany colored 8.1 percent doppelbock. Sweet malty flavor, smooth with hints of peat.
