Kronenbourg 1664 is a lager with a noble history, characterized by its fine taste.
Its golden hues and delicate bitterness come from selecting the best hops (the Strisselspalt), and the unique know-how of one of the French master brewers, for over 300 years.
Strisselspalt is also named the caviar of hops by the expert master brewers around the world for its low bitterness and aromatic qualities.
Its specific soil and culture technique requirements makes it rare and quite unique to the Alsace Region and Kronenbourg recipes.
Kronenbourg 1664 won the International Brewing Award’s Gold Medal for two years running (2004 and 2005), in recognition of its superior quality.
