Straub Altbier is the perfect warmer against the winter cold. Copper in color with a pronounced malt flavor, brewed with imported German hops for a firm, bitter edge, and fermented with authentic German ale yeast, this brew will have you hoping for 6 more weeks of winter!
The German-Style Altbier is one of the few authentic ales brewed in the German tradition. Bavarian brewers invented lager beer in the 16th century. Before that, the old style of brewing utilized ale yeast. "Alt" is German for old, so the "Altbier" is a beer made "in the old German style."
