Family business


In 1886, the Locher family take over the brewery in Appenzell. Today, the brewery has been in the hands of the family for five generations. With a good 90 employees, we’re like a big family – and this is what makes our local character, our close customer proximity and Appenzell traditions so important to us. These aspects inspire us and obligate us equally.

Our aim is to exceed all expectations of Appenzeller Bier. The beer specialities brewed in our traditional brewery each have their own unique and distinctive character. This character is formed by craftsmanship, in true brewing tradition, and by our high quality demands and diligence in manufacturing our products.
