Alt-eration, our 2012 World Beer Cup Gold Medal winning Altbier, is brewed using old world techniques, high quality German malts and noble hop varieties. We blend a base of German Pilsner malt with hefty portions of Munich, Vienna and a touch of de-bittered black malt. Alt-eration undergoes a multiple temperature mashing program to produce a classic upfront maltiness with a clean and crisp finish. Das Alt is hopped with Mt. Hood, Hallertauer Hersbrucker and Czech Saaz to provide a bitterness and level of earthy hop spice that plays a fancy partner to the classic German malt backbone.
