Ancient Alt

<p>Ancient Alt is a traditional &ldquo;old&rdquo; style of German ale first brewed in 1838 long before Germans began making lagers. &ldquo;Alt&rdquo; literally translates to &ldquo;old&rdquo; in German, fitting nicely with one our favorite areas of the PA Wilds, Cook Forest. Famous for its stands of old growth forest known as the &ldquo;The Ancients,&rdquo; Cook Forest State Park&rsquo;s Forest Cathedral of towering white pines and hemlocks is a National Natural Landmark. The forest canopy is between 350 &ndash; 450 years old, now we don&rsquo;t quite age our Altbier that long, but it is well worth the wait. Copper in color, with robust German Hops and Malts this brew is ideal after a long hike in the woods during the fall and winter.</p>
