What? Who? What? The answer to all these questions is YES! Allow us to introduce you to the best friend of Pretty Things, Jim Bocky Barnes. He was first Jim Barnes, then self-christened Bocktech, and finally nicknamed Bocky. Well, now Bocky is a beer, and a Pretty Things beer at that! Quite a transition. How did we do it? For after all, Bocky began this journey as a real-live-human-being. To make this transformation, we first planted Bocky in the rich soils of Europe and North Americas barley growing regions. We have often heard that Bocky leads a busy life. Well, this project really took him to the limits of his free time! As Bocky the barley plant matured he was harvested and transferred to several malting facilities, most notably Weyermann in Bamberg, Germany. There he sprouted tiny white shoots as he lay in the warm germination boxes. This may have been a peaceful, even blissful start to the process. But the restful times didnt last for long! First the dry heat of the kiln, then the violent tumble of the roasting drums. A small amount of Bocky was even smoked over an oak fire! Bejabbers, the lengths to which Bocky will go for a great beer! Bocky came to us as 4,000 pounds of barley, largely from Weyermann maltings in Germany. While his initial transformation may have been complete by now, his suffering was yet to hit its climax. Martha slowly crushed him with a 6-roller mill and Dann mashed and decocted him expeditiously. He spent two hours letting gravity pull him into the brew kettle. Then Bocky was boiled and fed to the yeast. For six weeks, he lay there in his cold lagering tank, occasionally expelling gas and alcohol. And then finally, one morning, he was ready. The transformation from man to lager was complete.
