Schmaltz's Alt

One of the Schell's successors, Waren, had a favorite pastime back in the 30's of going to the city dump to shoot rats–so much that it was a common date for him and his wife-to-be, Casey. The manager of the city dump was John Schmaltz–hence the nickname "Schmaltz." The brew has a rich, sweet malty flavor with hints of licorice and is balanced by a choclaty bitterness and is dark brown in color, topped by a thick, creamy tan head.
