Little Red Cap is our GABF Gold Medal winning. Once Upon a time in the ancient city of Dusseldorf, monks perfected a style of brewing that used the top-fermenting yeast of an ale and the cold conditioning of a lager. The result was a clean-tasting, full-bodied ale, known as Altbier. At Grimm Brothers, we’ve crafted our own version of an Altbier from specialty malts and the finest European and American hops. Like its namesake, Little Red Cap is copper-colored and alluringly sweet. But don’t be fooled there’s some sass hidden under that hood.
