Brewed by the Locher family at the foot of the Swiss Alps using only the purest water, 1936 Bière has a unique, fresh and ultra clean taste.
The water used to brew 1936 Bière filters through the Swiss Alps, taking up to 25 years to reach the source. This unique water is combined with raw ingredients - Swiss hops and golden barley grown at high altitude on the mountains - to create a beer totally free from artificial preservatives or additives. Long famous for its innovative prowess in the development of new beers, the 1936 Bière brewery also leads in the field of climate protection.
In order to turn barley into beer, it is necessary to malt the grain, malting gives the beer its flavourful body and colour. It is also vital for the fermentation process.
During the malting process, the barley is steeped in water and encouraged to germinate. Germination releases enzymes which transforms the starch into fermentable sugars. The malting process is stopped by drying the grain. The colour, and even the flavour of the malt, depend on the temperature or even degree of roasting occurring in the drying process, the results of the brewing process depend also on the quality of the grain used.
Excellent barley can be sourced from Switzerland, due to the ideal climate for agricultural production. We place great value on sourcing our barley locally. 1936 Bière therefore uses malted barley from the Appenzell region and other mountainous regions in Switzerland. This creates a real local beer, allowing you to taste Switzerland in every bottle
