Etymology[edit]

From German Bockbier, from Bock + Bier (beer). The former component is a southern German alteration of Einbeck, a brewery town in Lower Saxony, where the beer originally hails from. The Low German placename suffix -beck (-brook) was reinterpreted in southern dialects as the plural of Bock (buck).

Noun[edit]

  1. A strong, dark lager of German origin.
