(Ann Arbor, MI) – Here is the latest on new beers from Arbor Brewing Co., courtesy of the brewery’s Friday newsletter.
In Beer News!
Out this month-Olde Number 22 German Alt! This surprisingly easy-drinking dark ale has a smooth, malty and well-balanced profile. It’s dry without being too bitter and full-flavored without being too heavy and has very subtle smoky hints weighing in at 5.5 ABV and 46 IBU. Olde Number 22 is a special kind of Alt called a sticke or secret alt. This style was traditionally brewed in German brewpubs as a reward to loyal regulars. At a time when German brews were priced according to alcohol content, brewpubs would brew a secret alt that was richer, maltier, and higher in gravity. They served it unadvertised at the regular alt price exclusively to the regulars who knew to ask for it. Now on tap and available in bottles for in-house or carry-out!

Terminator Release Party
November 2, 6-8pm, Arbor Brewing
Join us as we kick off the holiday season with the much anticipated release of our Terminator Dopplebock! Our winter lager is perhaps our most famous beer, though no longer the strongest. Like all traditional German Dopplebocks it is richly spicy with a subtly sweet malt palate and a clean, crisp, dry hop finish. Historically, dopplebocks were brewed with high alcohol content and served as “liquid bread” for the monks while fasting. Monks who brewed the first dopplebocks named their beer salvator meaning “savior.” Today, brewers often add “ator” to the ending of their beers as a nod to the style. Some releases feature returning seasonals while others feature single-release specialty batches.
