Wet hopped beer.
Literally meaning "old beer", the Altbier originated in Düsseldorf, Germany and is similar in style to the Kolsch style from Cologne (Köln in German). This style is generally brewed with warm-fermenting ale yeast and then cold conditioned for a longer-than-normal time (usually several weeks).
Ranging in color from an amber to copper, the pale and roasted malts give toffee and caramel notes, while the long fermenting brings out fruity esters balanced by moderate earthy and herbal hop flavor and bitterness.
Best served cool, 46-54 degrees, and in a pint or stange glass.
Brewed for the nature lover in all of us,our Tree Hugger Ale is blossoming with flavor. Behold the amber color of the “Altcentric” ale and celebrate the majestic balance of both hops and malt. (Description provided by company)
Altbier, literally translated as “Old Style” beer, is a classic German ale. BBC Altbier is brewed with additions of Munich, wheat, caramel, and chocolate malts creating a delicate, but flavorful malt profile.
This malty, full-bodied double alt is also known as “Stickebier” – German slang for “secret brew”. Long Trail Double Bag was originally offered only in our brewery taproom as a special treat to our visitors. With an alcohol content of 7.2%, please indulge in moderation.
