Alt Route, an Alt Beer (Victory Brewing Company)

For our money, no one makes assertively bitter German style beers better than Victory Brewing Company and their collaboration with Sierra Nevada on the Alt Route plays right into this strength. The Alt Bier or "Old Style" originated in Dussledorf and is typically a well balanced copper colored ale with a brisk bitterness. Alt Route is a bit darker at light brown and adds some pleasant breadcrusty flavors and a brisk finish.
