BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Long Trail Brewing Co.
Vermont, United States
longtrail.com

Style: Altbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.20%

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.

A favorite. Love the malty richness; but has a bit of a kick. Deceptively smooth.

Fantastic beer. Can not believe the high-alcohol level. Doesn't taste like it. But after two, certainly felt like it. A unique beer that is smooth and tasty. Definitely recommend.
