AUGSTENBERG

WINDSWEPT BREWING Co WOLF DARK & STRONG SCOTTISH ALE

At the top of Augstenberg (2358m) in Liechtenstein. Four countries in the shot – Switzerland back left, Liechtenstein centre, Austria to the right and if you look very carefully Lake Constance and Germany in centre distance.

An interesting day with a bus trip into Lichtenstein up to the ski resort of Malbun where you get a chairlift up to the ridge at 2002m. From there it is a lovely ridge walk along the Liechtenstein/Austria border up to Augstenberg. There is a circular route back that takes you via the Pfalzerhutte for refreshments.

GEMMIPASS

WINDSWEPT BREWERY COMPANY TORNADO

At the Gemmipass (2270m) on the border between Cantons Bern and Valais in Switzerland. A lovely return walk from Kandersteg, not too strenuous, but long enough, with a convenient watering hole at Schwarenbach about half way on the route up (or back down).

The beer is crafted with a robust malt character to compliment the tropical fruit and resinous pine of the Citra hop.
