An American Tradition since 1878

Genesee Altbier can

“Alt” means “old beer” in a sense of an old-time style. This beer was brewed in the German tradition using ale yeast at cooler ale temperatures, then long cold aged to produce a slightly hoppy, well attenuated, balanced ale, with the smooth clean crispness of a lager. The bronzed copper color and subtle malt characters come from 2-Row, Munich and Black Malts. Traditional Hallertau noble hops provide for the assertive Dusseldorf hop profile.
