Ziegenbock (Ziegen Bock) is an amber ale brewed by Anheuser-Busch. It is billed as "for Texans by Texans," and distributed only in Texas. [1]

Ziegenbock is marketed under Anheuser-Busch's ICS (Import - Craft - Specialty) brand, positioned as a Texan beer to compete with Shiner Bock.[citation needed] Ziegenbock is brewed at Anheuser-Busch's Houston brewery and is very similar to Michelob Amber Bock. Like Shiner Bock and Amber Bock, it does not conform to the BJCP style guidelines [2] for a Bock, either in terms of flavor profile or potency.

Ziegfest[edit]

Ziegfest is an annual music festival sponsored by Ziegenbock and its parent company, Anheuser-Busch. Ziegfest typically features "red dirt" musicians. There are typically several venues with the events scheduled around a month apart.
