From Harriet: 

Harriet’s Elevator soars through layers of flavor like the refraction of light from a setting sun entering the atmosphere. Take in the view of Minneapolis, as you are elevated above the earth and past the intertwined constellations of Capricorn (the goat) and Aquarius (Harriet Brewing). Elevate your mind, body and soul.

Elevator Doppelbock is traditionally brewed using the decoction method and is lagered for two months. This beer is rich and malt driven, with characteristics of dark fruit and caramel supported by a light toastiness and just enough bitterness from the hops to keep it balanced. Elevator is hearty, yet clean and complex. It’s tempting to make this a daily ration of liquid bread… you know, to honor the monks.

From Harriet:

Nothin’ fancy here… except our best effort in creating a traditional German bock bier. As always, Harriet spares no rigor in cultivating complex overt maltiness via decoction mashing. Just enough Hallertau hops are added to balance and allow the malt to shine. The aroma and flavor are abundant with toasty notes, affirming the presence of plenty of Munich and Vienna malts. Alcohol stays in the background, yet provides the warmth we all look for in that perfect hearty fall brew. We strive for a light caramel character by scorching the first running in the brew kettle and allowing for a long vigorous boil. Yep, some styles you just don’t mess with.
