Kronenburg ( France )

Sold in 70 countries worldwide, Kronenbourg 1664 is France‘s No 1 selling beer and the UK’s second biggest premium selling lager. Its unique recipe is distinguished by the use of the aromatic Strisselspalt hop — the ‘caviar of hops’ which sets it apart from other beers.

The Strisselspalt hop has been exclusive to Alsace, the home of Kronenbourg 1664, since 1885 and is a unique variety of French aromatic hops, giving the beer an unrivalled aroma and superior taste. It is a 5% continental premium lager, more bitter than sweet, with a distinctive citrus flavour predominantly reminiscent of grapefruit.

Kronenbourg was launched in the UK in 1952 to mark The Queen’s accession to the throne.

Kronenbourg 1664’s distinctive continental style fount can be found in bars and restaurants and features a head injection tap (HIT) that delivers the perfect pour, giving a tight, smooth head that lasts the whole pint long.
