Altbier Beer Style


The name Altbier means “Old Beer” and is a German top fermented beer. Dusseldorf is known for brewing classic examples of this style.

The most common examples of Altbier range from bronze to deep copper and are typically fermented at ale temperatures and then conditioned at lager temperatures. This provides the beer with a rich maltiness with a clean crisp palate.
