One of only few remaining Ale beer in Germany, the copper colored Altbier is cold fermented and cold conditioned. It possesses a pleasant bitterness with a strong aroma of noble hops.
Alt, which means Old in German, refers to beer production mode before the arrival of lager in the 16th century. The city of Düsseldorf, one of the two cities that resisted the invasion of lagers and prohibited to brew other beers for hundreds of years, is the city where you always find the best Altbiers.
The perfect match according to Martin Thibault, Les Coureurs des Boires
This quencher’s lightly toasted barley will gel with a vegetarian lasagna’s grilled vegetables. The cereals’ mildly caramelized sugars will also meld with your pork’s maple glaze. Moreover, its comfortable body and soft carbonation will set the stage for a thorough reading of that travel book you’ve had your eye on for a while. The one for Germany, right?
