Düsseldorf's specialty, an Altbier is a German-style Brown Ale. The word alt” literally translates to "old" in German, and traditionally Altbiers are conditioned for a longer than normal periods of time. Other sources note that "alt" is derived from the Latin word "altus," which means "high" and refers to the rising yeast. Take your pick, but the extended conditioning mellows out this ale's fruitiness and produces an exceptionally smooth, clean, and delicate brew. Its color ranges from amber to dark brown, carbonation is moderate, and while known to express the slightly spicy, herbal character of Noble hops, the key word here is balance.

Our version of this beer comes in at about 5.8% ABV and is designed to be a nice easy drinking brew. It's malt profile lends itself to the beers complexity but is subtle enough that your non-craft beer drinking friends will love it as well. Perle and Tettnang round out the hop bill with a hint of chocolate and Munich to add color and malt flavor.
