Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
This malty, full-bodied double alt is also known as “Stickebier” – German slang for “secret brew”. Long Trail Double Bag was originally offered only in our brewery taproom as a special treat to our visitors. With an alcohol content of 7.2%, please indulge in moderation. The Long Trail Brewing Company is proud to have Double Bag named Malt Advocate’s “Beer of the Year” in 2001. Malt Advocate is a national magazine devoted to “expanding the boundaries of fine drinks”. Their panel of judges likes to keep things simple, and therefore of thousands of eligible competitors they award only two categories: “Imported” and “Domestic”. It is a great honor to receive this recognition.

22oz.

A: Pours a pretty, clear dark brass with a nice white head.

S: Smell brings moderate toffee, crisp yeast and caramelized grain, some fruity esters (grape, dried peach).

T: Taste brings mildly sweet dark bread, light molasses, crisp grain, very mild spicy hop bitterness.

M: Light-bodied with crisp carbonation.

O: Pretty nice altbier. Could drink a lot of this.
