Strangeways Mixolydian Rag Rye Bock Makes Shockoe Debut Tonight

If you missed trying it in their lab Friday night, Strangeways has three places in Shockoe Bottom where you can get your hands on their new lager:

Mixolydian Rag Rye Bock will be making its retailer debut at Sine, On the Rox, and Station 2 Monday night, July 22nd.

The Mixolydian Rag Rye Bock is our first foray into bottom fermented lager brewing. Inspired by the soaring guitar solos of Jerry Garcia, Mixolydian Rag is light and refreshing, yet complex and engaging with a combination of earthy sweetness, balanced by herbal hop notes. Rye malt provides a toasty spiciness while just a touch of smoke meanders through the flavor and aroma. German Magnum, Opal, Smaragd and Perle hops lend just the right amount of bitterness and herbal complexity. The lager yeast is a culture from the legendary Andechs Abbey in Bavaria.
