North German Ale
Altbier is the pride of Dusseldorf, Germany. ‘Alt’ – which means ‘old’ in German – is a reference to this beer style’s use of ale yeast. Before lager strains and styles consumed German brewing in the 1800s, ale yeast was traditionally employed in all brewing.
Bright and brassy hop aromas announce the firm dryness that underlies this German specialty ale. Dark malts, cool fermentation and cold aging deliver a well-integrated brew that is not unlike dark Prima Pils.
