ST. GALLEN | Brauerei Schützengarten have been brewing beer in St. Gallen since 1779, making them the oldest brewery in Switzerland. The beer that are produced by this still independent, family owned brewery are very popular in Eastern Switzerland, and the brewery itself is strongly rooted in the local area and community.

Schützengarten’s most popular beers are the traditional German types like St. Galler Klosterbräu, a naturally cloudy, unfiltered 5.2% ABV Amber Lager, and the Stock Hell, a crisp 4.8% ABV helles lager. They do, however also produce other beers like their 6.8% ABV Red IPA and 5.6& ABV Gallus 612 Old Style Ale.

The beers can be found all over St. Gallen, but for the best selection head to the Schützengarten brewery. There’s a retail store on site that features the full range of Schützengarten beers, including ones that aren’t as easy to find as the more popular beers. While at the brewery you can also visit the brewery’s Beer Bottle Museum. It features over 3,000 beer bottles from the collection of Christian Bischof. The bottles come from 260 different Swiss breweries dating back to 140 years ago until today.

Tours are also run – on appointment for groups or once a month for walk-ins, however do be aware that they are run entirely in German.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. 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.
