Altbier | 5.6% ABV | 50% IBU
Taking inspiration from a traditional German Altbier using Kosch yeast, we decided to amplify the hops greatly making this almost an IPA. This light-medium body beer has plenty of Munich malt to carry that bitterness with flavors of toast and baked bread. The hops give a spicy layer surrounded by floral and herbal notes.
Northbound came on the scene 2012 after crowd funding their way into production. The model worked and the brewery is now a proud winner of a Silver Medal in the World Beer Cup, one of the most prestigious beer competitions in the world. Unlike many other breweries in the Twin Cities, Northbound Smokehouse is truly a brew pub with a restaurant and full bar. Their Smokehouse Porter epitomizes Northbound Smokehouse, a great brewery with fantastic BBQ and a large whiskey selection- capturing the essence of smokey, grilled foods and pairing well crafted brews.
