at its highest level
Our brewery installation made by the Kaspar Schulz Co. in Bamberg (Germany) is considered one of the most modern systems on the market today. Our brew house has a capacity of 10hl per brew, the fermentation and storage tanks have a capacity of 200hl.
Technology is well and good but the experience of our brewmaster counts at least twice of that! The combination of knowhow and technology enables an optimum storage and ripening process. This is important for the optimal fermentation of alcohol content and carbon dioxide. After storage the Zermatt Beer is filled into bottle with the fully automatic filling system.
Environment plays an important role in Zermatt. We not only live from nature, we love it! For this reason we only sell our Zermatt Beer in climate-friendly and environmentally friendly reusable bottles. These are returned to our brewery after use, cleaned, rinsed and refilled – this can be repeated up to 50 time per bottle.
The biological waste that is generated during the brewing process does not go in the compost also, instead it goes to the village baker, butcher and dairy: with the malt spent grains (malt residue) we make spent grain bread, sausage and cheese. This is a true insider’s tip for anyone who truly enjoys local specialties!
Spent grain bread is manufactured in cooperation with bakeries «Binär» and «Fuchs». The «Matterhorn Fleisch AG» produces spent grain «Bratwurst» and «Hauswurst».
