This taproom favorite is a maltier counterpart of the Kölsch. With a toasted malt backbone and an assertive bitterness from the Noble hop profile, each sip is refreshing and addictive. The name is German for "Old-Beer" which refers to the traditional brewing methods of the Düsseldorf brewers that set them apart.

The Altbier is often considered the rival beer of the Kölsch because of the long-standing love/hate relationship between Düsseldorf and Köln. Don’t you dare order one style in the other city!
