What makes a Düsseldorf Altbier style bier unique and uber crisp?

Altbiers are traditionally crafted with special ale yeasts fermented at cool ale temperatures (or 60-65 degrees F). The word “ALT” refers to this old style of brewing used in the mid 1800’s as well as the longer aging time needed for cold fermentatio to create its super crisp flavour.

Altbiers look like ales, feature ale yeast and are hopped like ales but are fermented at cooler temperatures like lagers.  The result?  Robust crispness unlike any other beer!
