The harmonious collaboration between Cask & Larder Brewery and The Bach Festival Society came to be after Betsy Gwinn and Alex Tiedtke, of the Bach Festival Society, discovered a 300-year old letter Johann Sebastian Bach wrote to a friend proclaiming his love for a barrel of beer he had received as a gift. Gwinn and Tiedtke approached Foor about brewing a beer in a style similar to the one Bach wrote about to celebrate the Bach Festival Society of Winter Park’s 80th anniversary in 2015. Now approaching its 82nd Annual Winter Park Bach Festival, from Jan. 29- Feb. 28 the Winter Park ensemble is the third oldest Bach Festival Society in the United States.
The limited edition beer will be available on tap at The Ravenous Pig until it runs out and also will be sold in 32-ounce and 64-ounce to-go growlers. Additionally, Swine & Sons will have 32-ounce to-go crowlers for purchase. Cask & Larder Brewery will donate $1 from each Brandenburger Bock sold to the Bach Festival Society of Winter Park.
