Others claim that bock references the is linked to the name of the town of Einbeck / Einbock. Bocks are known for their rich malt character and low bitterness. High in food energy and nutrients, these beers were traditionally brewed by monks during fasting on holidays such as Christmas and Lent. These stronger brews are thus closely associated with the holidays.
