After nearly one year in development, Liechtensteiner Brahuas has launched a new type of lager bier called Alpagold and reinvigorated its brand and range of beers.
Liechtensteiner Brauhaus was founded eight years ago. According to an article in the Liechtensteiner Vaterland, the brewerys range of beers and brand has been reinvigorated by replacing the existing Krona beer with a new premier lager Alpagold, which the brewery describes as down-to-earth, straightforward and huara söffig (very drinkable).
The company invested in new technology in recent years and changed its brewing process. Alpagold comes with a completely new recipe and a newly designed bottle, writes the Liechtensteiner Vaterland. Another change is that the existing speciality beers are now called Liechtensteiner Hell (light) in the Munich style and Liechtensteiner Weiza (wheat). Even the Lichtensteiner Brauhaus logo has been redesigned to place greater emphasis on its microbrewery character.
As the Liechtenstein Volksblatt reports, it took nearly a full year of development to produce the Alpagold beer with its new hop varieties. A new yeast produces less sulphur aromas, while the slow cold maturation in sub-zero temperatures prevents the formation of what is known as fusel alcohols. This helps to lower the risk of headaches associated with drinking beer.
