Notes/Commercial Description:
Brewers are notorious for refusing to take the easy path. Instead, we lead with our hearts and pursue our passions no matter how difficult the road ahead. Alt Route is a tribute to this stubborn spirit that drove us to dodge the status quo and found breweries. Together we chased the siren song of beer with this revamped take on an antique beer style.

Like us, Victory is one of the few brewers with an allegiance to whole-cone hops. They do extensive work with hop flavor, especially focusing on clever and delicious single-hop beers highlighting the same hop grown in different regions. They too share our roots in home brewing and never lost their passion for working with new beers and styles solely for the joy of making something new.

A very tasty and a touch toasty altbier. Very smooth and has a super slippery light texture. This is the first of the beer camp pack that I actually can say I enjoy drinking. very smooth, although there isn't a ton of taste, its much more about the texture of this one~
