Buzzards Bay Alt


Formerly brewed at Buzzards Bay Brewing
Westport, Massachusetts USA
Style: Altbier | Ratings: 25 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 5%
Buzzards Bay Brewing’s Alt is the South Coast’s take on a German classic. Brewed with copious amounts of German malts and hops, our Alt is a well-balanced copper hued old-world ale. Like all Alts, ours toes the line between two worlds. It’s brewed with an ale yeast, but it is treated like a lager. It is fermented and cellared at a colder temperature, for a longer time than most ales. The result is a clean, drinkable beer with a very light and warming estery aroma that accents the earthy Hallertau hops added late in the boil. We hope you enjoy our Alt as the weather turns colder. Cheers and prosit!
