OBC launches new core brand, Gnat Knocker Helles Lager

As the weather warms up and the gnats begin to swarm, OBC has launched it's newest member of the family, Gnat Knocker German-style Helles Lager.

"This is a beer for everyone," said owner Robert Lee. "We've had this brew in our plans now for almost a year. The name says it all, it's a beer that is light and crisp, but still full of flavor. We wanted to create a brew for someone who may be on the fence about trying craft beer, but also something that is true-to-style and that a regular craft beer drinker would enjoy."

Available year-around, Gnat Knocker is 4.5 percent ABV. Our German-style Helles is described as a light Munich Helles lager pale in color with a sweet cereal nose and a dry finish. An easy-drinking, light beer full of simple flavors. Whether the weather is hot or whether the weather is not, this brew was meant for relaxation, enjoying good company and watching the south Georgia sunset.

Currently available only on draft, look for and request Gnat Knocker at your local craft beer bar in our entire Georgia footprint, as well as parts of Alabama.

Knock a few back, because the only thing more persistent than gnats is a pint glass bugging you for more.
