Description Additional Information
Our Northern German Altbier is an incredibly clean, easy drinking, and balanced beer. Deep brown in color the love2brew Alt has rich notes of biscuit, some slight toast, and hints of caramel flavor that blend together and linger on the tongue after each sip. Hop flavor is non-existent in this beer since you'll be using a high Alpha hop chosen for the ability to balance the potential sweetness from the malt blend. This brew works best with the liquid Altbier yeast and fermented a little cooler than typical ales to help provide the light body and drinkability that will leave you yearning for another pint!

Experimental Brewing Ideas

Break Tradition with Hops

Dusseldorf brew pubs sometimes brew a hoppier Altbier than standard. Usually they do not announce it and allow patrons to enjoy the surprise! We suggest experimenting with some late addition/dry hops of your favorite varieties. There is no wrong answer!

Traditional German Meals

Altbier is a traditional beer with deep historical roots. It is no surprise that Altbier has a long list of food pairings. Try something new such as Meatballs in a White Caper Sauce or Eggs boiled in salt water and cumin with your Alt!
