DAVOS | BierVision Monstein is a brewery housed in a former dairy dating back over 100 years that produces traditional German beers with a sense of place. When it opened in 2001, the brewery was the highest altitude brewery in Europe. While that’s no longer the case, that doesn’t change the spectacular views afforded to those who visit Monstein, the village in which the brewery is located.

Head brewer Basti Degen is passionate about good beer, and uses the highest quality and, where possible, local ingredients around. In fact, everything except for the majority of malt, which is sourced from Germany, is local. Of particular note is the alpine water that’s used in the beer. Monstein is located 1625 meters above sea level, and the water that flows through streams from the mountain tops and is so pure that it doesn’t need to be filtered before going into the tanks.

The Monsteiner Wätterguoge Bier, a 5.0% ABV dunkel (dark German lager), is made with smoked malt and is particularly tasty with notes of caramel, toast, smoke, nuts, milk, fruit, and shortbread. Another highlight is the Monsteiner Häffäffel, a top fermented, easy drinking, fruity 5.0% ABV wheat beer.

The brewery operates using sustainable methods – spent grain is given to farmers to feed their animals and other byproducts are used in environmentally friendly ways. As well as beer, BierVision Monstein also produce an assortment of tasty cheese, meat, bread and chocolate products in cooperation with innovative Davos companies. Many of these can be sampled and purchased at the brewery.

Guided tours of the brewery, which include a beer tasting, can be arranged on request for groups of 10 or more, and if you visit between 4:00pm and 7:00pm on a Friday, you can enjoy some free beers. The experience of trying the beers at various stages of fermentation, and drinking fresh beers directly from the tanks, is particularly interesting (and delicious).

The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
