“Shhhh! Don’t say anything, but I think the crew at Mankato Brewery got a bit out of control when they were weighing out the ingredients for their traditional Altbier!“
The name “Stickum” is derived from a German vernacular word “stiekum” which means: “to say something quietly, behind one’s cupped hand”. It is no secret, we meant to do this! Stickum is a Sticke-Altbier, brewed on special occasion to a higher strength and bitterness than its everyday counterpart. With a brilliant mahogany hue, hefty malt backbone and robust bitterness to back it up, Stickum exhibits notes of toasty malt and caramel coupled with an earthy-spicy hop character, a full body and an underlying winey character from fermentation.
