GERMAN BEER. TEXAS BREWERY.


 

A WORLD-CLASS BREWERY - LIKE NO OTHER.

Let’s face it - Germans know and love their beer.  After all, they have been perfecting the art & science of brewing it for over 500 years.  No surprise, fine German imports continue to garner the world's highest awards, accolades and price tags.   But ALTSTADT, unlike other premium imports, crafts it's truly exceptional, authentic German style beer here locally -- in the historic charm of Fredericksburg, Texas.  

Old Fredericksburg, established by German immigrants back in the mid 1800's, is where ALTSTADT got it's name sake from-- literally translates to “old town” --  where the heritage of old world German brewing first began.  Today, ALTSTADT's German brew master continues the time honored traditions, crafting smooth, supremely drinkable beers, using only the highest quality, imported, 100% natural German ingredients & pure spring water.  After meticulous preparation, in a state-of-the-art facility second to none.  In Spring 2018, ALTSTADT let's you taste, tour & enjoy every premium German beer they make without needing a passport!  While there are many great breweries in America, few are as choice, distinctive and discriminating as ALTSTADT.  Come for the beer, stay for the adventure and create memories that last a lifetime.

No Impurities.  No Regrets.

EXCEPTIONAL GERMAN BEER.

Altstadt is one of the few remaining breweries that still adheres to the original German Purity Laws of 1516. These decrees state that only four basic ingredients be included in the production of any quality beer: ­ Water, Hops, Malt and Yeast.   No corn or rice adjuncts, no sugars or preservatives, no artificial flavors or additives of any kind. Forget the gimmicky fruits and spices ­- we craft pure, wholesome beer with a smooth, authentic taste that’s easy to enjoy and impossible to resist.

OUR FINE BEERS.



OUR FINE BEERS.



ALT       -       KOLSch      -      LAGER      -       WEISS

Altstadt Brewery’s LAGER is a light, friendly, malt centric beverage that features noble hops, just enough to balance its maltiness. A beer brewed with the finest German malts, hops from Munich’s neighboring Hallertau growing region and a cold fermenting yeast from Weihenstephan. The yeast is so good, we are keeping it here - leaving you with a clear, clean, refreshing beverage to enjoy.

KOLSCH originated from the German town of Cologne. This lightly colored beer is known for its clean flavor, finishing with a subtle hop aroma. This is not your every day hop bomb, it is more a kiss of hops at the end, a crisp, refreshing all day beverage. Brewed with German malts, German yeast and “select” German hops, Altstadt Brewery is aiming high to compare itself to the finest beers Cologne is offering. We just do it here, in Texas.

ALT is a classic top-fermenting Altbier yeast strain kept at traditional cold temperatures. Alt is brewed with selected caramel and darker malts that lend its beautiful amber color tones. Fine aroma hops are added also.  Alt is brewed with an authentic Altbier yeast from Germany which includes hand-selected exceptional malts and hops. Also included are delightful and delicate toffee notes upfront which pleasantly linger on the palate for just a bit...before a light aromatic but smooth finish leaves you thirsting for more. Alt pairs well with stews, grilled fish, roasts, steaks and hearty cheese varieties.

THE BREW MASTERS.


a unique brewery unlike any other.

THE BREW MASTERS.


a unique brewery unlike any other.

German Tradition.  STATE-OF-THE-ART Texas BREWERY.

Prime ingredients are where we start, but time-honored brewing traditions are how we finish. Altstadt has proudly built one of the most modern, state-of-the-art brewing facilities in the US. However, technology alone does not make a great beer -- ­the people and the process also make a difference.

That’s why we insist on remaining true to the timeless principles of our German brewing heritage. Like installing an Old World direct fired copper brew house from Kaspar Schulz in Germany ­ the oldest brewery machine manufacturer in the world. Recognized as the undisputed leader in quality, durability and results that are second to none.

Direct fired brewing utilizes a true flame instead of steam, and combined with all copper brew house, ensures a much more even distribution of heat. A must in ensuring a crisp, clean beer flavor with no bitter aftertaste.

Additionally, Altstadt lagers are finished using a classic open fermentation process ­ something rarely done elsewhere in the world today. Open fermentation allows unwanted compounds to naturally escape into the air rather than being absorbed back into your beer. This time-honored, labor-intensive style of brewing results in a delicious, exceptionally smooth tasting beer that’s truly extraordinary.

GO FOR GOLD


 

 

GO FOR GOLD


 

 

The gold standard of 'German Domestics'

Authentic German Brew Masters have a renowned tradition of brewing some of the finest, most refreshing beers on earth ­and with good reason. For only the choicest, hand selected ingredients are allowed into each delicious batch of their legendary lagers.  Although we’ve set up shop in the Lone Star State, our recipes and brewing methods date back centuries in old Bavarian culture. To become the best you have to start with the best. A philosophy that’s reflected in every beer we create.

100% pure, pristine deep well water ­low­ mineral, free of impurities and naturally refreshing. Since beer is mostly water (90­95% by volume), it only makes sense to start with the very best.

Coveted Hallertau hops­ long ­heralded as one of the premier strains for creating world-­class beers. The great aroma and slightly spicy taste provide for an exceptional drinking experience.

Two-­row summer malting barley ­produces a fuller, maltier flavor that everyone can appreciate. 

No Impurities.  No Regrets.
