Brauquöll Appenzell - Visitor centre of the Locher AG brewery

During an exciting audio tour of the «Brauquöll Appenzell» visitor center (not through the brewery), you will learn many interesting things about our art of brewing and learn how our Appenzeller beer and Säntis Malt Whisky, as well as delicious new specialties such as CréaCeto beer vinegar or Treber-Tschipps are made from quell-fresh water. In the historic hop cellar you can gain insights into the brewery during a short film screening, and the small museum brings old times to life.

Afterwards, you have the opportunity to purchase your favourite beer, various fan articles or a suitable gift for any occasion in the Brauquöll shop.

On request we offer various beer & whisky tastings for individuals and groups.
