North Coast Releasing Alt Nouveau Altbier

imageFrom North Coast:

A new seasonal release! 

The “alt” in Altbier has dual meaning, referring both to the top-fermenting yeast used to make the beer (Latin— altus— high) and to the ale itself, literally the old style of beer in a country now famous for its lager beers (German—alt—old; from an earlier time).

Made famous in the city of Dusseldorf, Altbier has a varied profile, depending on the brewer, from malty to hoppy.
North Coast Brewing's Alt Nouveauis a decidedly hoppy take on the style, reviving a brand the brewery first released in the early nineties.

Available for a limited time. Use our beer locator to find Alt Nouveau in bottles or on draft near you under the category:
"Heritage Seasonals."

The Art Nouveau style illustration on the label is inspired by the artichoke plantings at North Coast’s partner, Fortunate Farm.
