Please be aware that all ratings and comments reflect my opinion only ! So don't blame me if I dislike your favourite brewery. Fortunately we are free to like whatever we like...
Founded in 1810
||"The family Locher bought the brewery ""in Appenzell"" (1810) back in 1886. This family-owned enterprise, run by the 5th generation, has 90 employees and is one of the most ambitious national breweries and enjoys an impressive growth (12'000 hl in 1994; 60'000 hl in 2008; more than 200'000 since 2018; some source even put them at more than 400'000 hl!). It is also the most important contract brewer of the country and produces beers for 1936, Ackermann, Mein Emmental, Ela Bier, Calvinus, Komturei Tobel, Wyssestei and Hopfentropfen and probably more). Locher is exporting about 4'500 hl yearly. It was the first brewery ""online"" back in 1991! Some original beers and offering basically solid and well-made german-style products. If you are looking for so-called craft beer styles, you are at the wrong place..."
