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.

12oz bottle into pint glass.

A - Deep amber copper with a small white head.

S - Biscuit malts, caramel, light banana notes.

T - Very bready with some fruitiness and sweet caramel malt. Finish has a light hop bitterness with slight nuttiness.

M - Super smooth, medium bodied, decent carbonation.

O - Delicious altbier. Highly drinkable, alcohol is masked well. Definitely one of the best examples I've had for this style.
