A traditional North German beer brewed in sunny California, Hangar 24 Alt Bier Ale follows the tradition with one small twist. Hangar 24 Craft Brewery adds chocolate roasted malt to this altbier to add complexity to this ale and gives it some dryness to balance out the caramel malts. This chocolate is preceded by silky caramel smoothness and toasty bready flavors. All these flavors come through in the aroma that combine in a truly unique, very clean and complex beer.

The Alt Bier is a specialty of Düsseldorf. The word ‘alt’, literally ‘old’ in German, comes from the beer being conditioned for longer periods of time. The extended conditioning time mellows out the beer’s fruitiness and gives it an exceptionally smooth and crisp taste.
Hangar 24 Craft Brewery, given its name from being located adjacent from the Redlands Airport, was founded by Ben Cook who is a lover of both brewing and aviation. The brewery was founded with a passion for good beer, a love of aviation and the pure enjoyment of being around friends.
