"Alt" in German means "old" and when used in connection with beer the implication is that the beer is of a type that pre-dates the pale, bottom-fermented styles most commonly found in Germany today. "Alt" as a beer style in and of itself generally refers to amber-colored top-fermented ales associated with the city of Dusseldorf and its environs. A typical Altbier is light to medium in body and sports lots of hop character. Baird New World Alt is brewed with German Pils and Vienna base malts while deriving its copper color and body from additions of both Caramel and Chocolate Wheat malts. 40 BUs of Horizon, Perle, Vanguard and Sterling hops punctuate the flavor experience from start to finish.
