An Altbier with assertive hop bitterness and crisp amber malt character.
A crisp and refreshing Altbier, Gestalt is the perfect late summer sipper. This hybrid style was first defined in Dusseldorf, where brewers pitched ale yeast but allowed their beer to mature at cool temperatures (in the lager tradition). The final product is bright copper in color and exceptionally smooth, balancing assertive hop bitterness with warm malt character. Named after the psychological theory suggesting a whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
