The Olde Mecklenburg Brewery will tap its Anniversary Alt at noon on Friday, March 7. This beer was brewed for the first time last year to celebrate OMB’s fourth anniversary. They’re celebrating their fifth year now, and they have a lot to toast to (namely the opening of their new brewery this summer).
The Anniversary Alt is in the “Sticke Alt” style made popular by the Uerige brewery, which is to say it will be a stronger version of the classic Altbier style. It’s a bigger, slightly sweeter version of the brewery’s flagship Copper (Anniversary Alt clocks in at 6 percent ABV, whereas Copper is 4.8 percent).
The brewery will also host a party to celebrate its anniversary on Friday, March 28.
