Beer is always different, because the water used is always different!
The water used in brewing beer has a decisive influence on the taste of the beer, and hence on the overall result. The source of the water, whether it is hard or soft, and the salt and mineral content of the water are all factors which will directly influence the beer.
Appenzeller Bier is made from spring water from the Alpstein massif. This pure water, which springs out from the source crystal clear and ready-filtered after its long journey through the rock, is of excellent quality, and exceedingly pure. For us, this means we are able to use it without further processing – brewed straight from source, so to speak. Our spring water gives our beer a unique purity and quality.
