Sticke was my first solo recipe back in 2013 when we brewed it as a fundraiser for the Pink Boots Society. The recipe has been tweaked and prodded, and this batch is pretty damn good.

“Sticke” is slang for “secret” in German. The Sticke Alt was actually a pleasant mistake made by Alt producer, Urge, in Dusseldorf that became so popular they continued to produce it several times a year, typically for release in October and January. Our Sticke Alt was first made in 2013 with the NW Chapter of the Pink Boots Society (a group of women beer professionals) and was Lisa’s very first recipe. We liked the Sticke so much we decided to make it a regular seasonal. This beer is perfect for the fall. It’s rich malty notes are balanced with a nice hoppy zing on the finish.
