Track 85® Altbier Lagered Ale

Easy Drinking. Crisp. Clean.

What’s an Altbier?

Looking to chill out?  Like this cold-conditioned Altbier, you need to stay cool under pressure.  And our Altbier style of lagered ale takes you back to simpler days and the ancient cold-aging brewing process still practiced in the Dusseldorf area of Germany today.

Altbiers are all about smooth flavour and crisp finishes.  Patiently cold-aged in the tank, Altbiers require a specialty yeast we brought over from Germany.  The cooler fermentation temperature mellows out the fruitiness, creating an exceptionally smooth brew.  Even the  worst day can be forgotten once this mellow liquid reaches your parched lips.

Track 85® is one of a very few altbier-style beers now available in Canada.  This brew’s  all about a crisp, smooth ride – so crack open a cold one  — you might as well enjoy it!

Oh, we forgot to mention that Track 85® just won GOLD at the 2017 Ontario Brewing Awards.  But don’t take our word for it, try one today!
