Altstadt Brewery in Fredericksburg, Texas, is fully dedicated to brewing and serving traditional German-style beers, from its impressive, copper-plated Rolec brewhouse to its high-ceilinged beer-hall atmosphere. That spirit and attention to detail naturally extend to the beers, including the Lager, a Munich-style helles that won gold—as did their Kölsch—at the Great American Beer Festival in 2019.

In this 57-minute video course, head brewer Craig Rowan breaks down Altstadt’s entire approach to brewing an award-winning helles, including details on water, ingredients, grist ratio, mash steps, fermentation, lagering, carbonation, finishing, and more.
