"Brewer: Johann Rüegg
The brewery has been founded in 1862 by the brothers Schmid et Johann Steiner at the same place it stays still nowadays. This family-owned enterprise has 35 employees and is led by the 4th generation of the german family Beck which own Baar since 1902. This brewery enjoys an impressive growth: 8'500 hl in 2005, then 9'500 in 2006, 12'000 in 2008, 13'500 in 2010, 15'723 in 2013, 20'000 in 2016 and 21'000 in 2017.
Offers average (at best) german traditionnal lager beers. Don't look for craft beer styles here."
