Sticke Alt Collaboration Release - 7.12.11

Coming up this Tuesday at 3:00 we'll be offering the first ever McCoy's collaboration beer - a Sticke Alt brewed with local Gordon Biersch brewmaster James Hudec.  Some style info from BeerAdvocate: "An Altbier is a German style brown ale, the “alt” literally translates to "old" in German, and traditionally Altbiers are conditioned for a longer than normal periods of time. Other sources note that "alt" is derived from the Latin word "altus," which means "high" and refers to the rising yeast. Take your pick, but the extended conditioning mellows out the ale's fruitiness and produces an exceptionally smooth and delicate brew. The color ranges from amber to dark brown, medium in carbonation with a great balance between malt and hops. 

"Sticke" is a stronger version of an Altbier, thus a bit more malty and hoppy to boot."

Come check out this very special beer for only $3 on Tuesday - our way of saying thanks to the loyal McCoy's beer drinkers over the last 15 years.  Cheers!
