Penobscot Blue Ribbon 5.0: Northern German Altbier
The winning recipe for the fifth (almost) annual Maine Homebrewers Competition came to us from Jim Rausch, a veteran homebrewer who beat out several excellent submissions from some local brewers of note, including a few past champions! His altbier is a smooth and malty ale that is perfect for fall. Substantial enough to warm you up on a cool evening, but not overpowering. This is a great version of a hard to find beer style.
