Breweries are always impressive places, with their shining polished brewhouses and a veritable tangle of pipes. The typical scent of fermenting barley and malt makes beer lovers’ mouths begin to water. But there’s far more behind the success of the Brauerei Locher AG. It’s the faces behind the scenes, the Appenzell brewers’ passion and commitment to traditional methods, that have made this family business what it is today: a creative small-scale brewery that is big on performance.
