OMB tries to summon spring with Fruh Bock

Olde Mecklenburg Brewery will release the seasonal Früh Bock (say froo bock) Feb. 27, and since its name means "early" in German (and is short for Frühling, which means "spring"), maybe warm weather will immediately ensure. The brew is described as malty sweet with almost citrusy notes, and is 6 percent alcohol by volume (its Copper is 4.8).

Also coming up at OMB: a St. Patrick's Day party March 14, a sixth-anniversary celebration March 28 and a Louisiana Spring Crawfish Boil April 18.
