“Alt” is German for old. Our Alt 1848 is a copper-hued ale with spicy caramel flavor and timeless style. Sean Gray's illustration features the copper kettle top over our bar that came from Füchschen brewery, one of the original brewers of Alt Bier in 1848.
“Alt” is German for old. And while our beer is fresh as a Siberian iris in spring, the style couldn’t be more classic. Ale is the old-fashioned method of making beer, originally brewed in Düsseldorf, Germany. (Not the newfangled lager style that showed up later.) Our Alt 1848 is a copper-hued ale with spicy caramel flavor and timeless style.
The copper kettle top over our bar comes from Füchschen brewery, one of the original brewers of Alt Bier in 1848. Sean’s illustration features a badger and a fox brewing on the copper kettle. The badger references Brewmaster Eric’s alma mater (the University of Wisconsin, which also opened in 1848). The fox references Füchschen, which translates to “little fox.” While the fox and badger brew up some Alt 1848 for us, the sun pouring through the window makes it a classic Utepils moment.
