Our beer is made from natural products. Preserving and protecting nature and intact relationships is top on our list of priorities.
Therefore, we see it as crucial to keep our production processes in line with the latest and forward-looking demands on climate protection and environmental protection, and to support our region – our homeland. We can’t prevent CO2 emissions, but we do actively accept responsibility for environment and climate protection.
Knowing that, despite all ecological measures, we cannot prevent all emissions, we have signed up with the internationally recognised non-profit organisation and committed to compensate for our CO2 emissions. Our Quöllfrisch was awarded the “Gold Standard” label for this.
With our “Appenzeller Naturperle” beer, we were the first brewery in Switzerland to produce a beer which bears the "Bud" label, awarded by Bio Suisse, to certify it is fully organic. The barley malt and hops used in this beer are sourced exclusively from organic farms.
Supporting our region is of great importance to us. By means of synergies and partnerships, we aim to strengthen the region in the long term and play our part in continuing its economic success despite fierce competition and globalisation. For this reason, the Brauerei Locher AG is a partner in .
The Locher AG Brewery feels very strongly about promoting Swiss products. Thanks to the partnership with and the mountain farmers of Grison, we were able in 1996 to bring the cultivation of malting barley back to Switzerland and promote this long-term. The seeds of the special Appenzeller Bier are quite literally sown today on the highest malting barley fields in Europe, between 1200 and 1700 metres above sea level. By supporting the cultivation of malting barley in the mountains of Switzerland, we ensure our Appenzeller Bier is consistently of the highest quality. At the same time, we contribute to preserving Alpine habitats.
