Spalter Select

Released in 1993, Spalter Select was bred in Hüll, Germany in an effort to increase yield potential and disease resistant and serve as a commercial replacement for Spalt. These efforts were quite successful.

The result of a cross of Spalt and Hallertau Mittelfrüher, Spalter Select retains some of the finer characteristics of both these varieties and is considered a slightly spicier version of Spalt. Brewing giant Anheuser-Busch replaced both Spalt and Tettnanger with Spalter Select.
