High Sticke Alt

Powerful German-Style Ale, Pretty Agile On Skates

With big aromas of stone fruit and toffee, plus a slap shot of spicy hop flavor and assertive bitterness, Summit High Sticke Alt basically runs the rink. Cross-checking, throwing elbows, talking trash — the beer just does what needs to be done. Deep copper in color, traces of toast, caramel, and biscuit come from a complex blend of German malts, while a huge hop load and a long period of cold conditioning result in crisp, refreshing drinkability. Find our newest limited beer on draft and in 12-oz. bottles, only inside the Summit Penalty Box.

Conversation Starter

Inspired by the Altbier style famous to Düsseldorf, Germany, High Sticke Alt has roots that go back centuries. “Alt” is literally German for old, referring to the beer’s method of fermentation, and “Sticke,” on the other hand, means secret — a nod to the special-occasion seasonal beers brewers would make for themselves and their favorite customers.


Serving Tips

Serve at 44–48ºF in a tapered Becher glass.
