“Alt” means “old” in German and is a reference to the traditional brown ales brewed in Germany before the advent of lagers. This style is still brewed in Dusseldorf. So simply stated, altbiers are German style brown ales. “Original” refers to the fact that this beer, in a slightly different formulation, was in our original line of beers when we opened Tennessee’s first brewpub in Germantown in 1992.
