Altes Original Detroit Lager is making a comeback for Opening Day.

It’s one of the oldest Michigan-brewed beers, dating all the way back to 1910, before vanishing sometime in the 1990’s. The brew was once an official beer and sponsor of the Detroit Tigers and Detroit Lions.

We're back! Sort of. We have exactly 130 beers. And you can have one if you make it to Nemo's at 10am on Opening day. #altes #altesoriginal

Samples of the new beer will be available today (April 5) at Nemo’s Bar and Grill in Corktown in honor of Detroit Tigers Opening Day.

Altes Original Detroit Lager is expected to be on store shelves and available at restaurants later this spring, with initial distribution in nine southeast Michigan counties. See map below.
