Worth Brewing Company

If it's not hand crafted.. it's not Worth Brewing

Worth Brewing Company has reintroduced a great tradition, the locally owned brewery serving hand-crafted, high quality, distinctive craft beers. The nation's small and mid-sized towns were once dotted with such breweries. Today Worth Brewing brings a bit of those days back to the delight of the growing number of those who appreciate locally brewed beers.

Small-batch tapping on Tuesday: Altbier. This is a dark copper colored brew fermented at a moderate temperature using a top-fermenting yeast. The warmer temps give its flavor some fruitiness, but it is matured at a cooler temperature, which gives it a cleaner and crisper taste more akin to lager beer.
