Re: Is coop prix guarantie beer brewed in the Falken brewery in Schaffhausen?

The coop Bio range is brewed by Falken, so would assume the current prix guarantie is as well. The old coop Helvetia prix guarantie bier was brewed by Schützengarten.

That said the Coop Tell beers and the old 55rappen beer is/was brewed by Calanda-Haldengut aka Heineken Switzerland and the "Cheap buy 24 cans" Anker Bier is brewed at Carlsberg's Cardinal brewery

Just be grateful that is not brewed by Ramseier Suisse (formerly Unidrink Getränke / Lupo) who seem to make most of the really cheap lagers for sale in swiss shops.

There's a Feldschlossen alcohol frei. It's OK. I preferred the Clausthaller (think that was its name). They both were in the CooP the last I looked. They also do a alcohol frei organic but it was disgusting.

Re: Is coop prix guarantie beer brewed in the Falken brewery in Schaffhausen?

Alcohol free beer, why oh why oh why. Still not as silly as alcohol free wine. Anyway, back on subject, and to each their own...

What are the recommended 'cheap' beers? Most of the time, if no promo on Heineken or Feldschlossen I go for Loewenbraeu as it's generally 1 CHF a can from either Denner or Coop, and it goes down quite well. Also reminds me of my University days (well what I can still remember of them).

So 'coop prix guarantie beer' is worth a go?

Yeah Lowenbraeu good value. Prix Guarantee fine going down tastes good. It's just the day after thing. May be just me though. They do a weiss version of Prix Guarantee for about 80c a can. I found that really nice.

Re: Is coop prix guarantie beer brewed in the Falken brewery in Schaffhausen?

Are the prix garantie beers crewed according the DE brewing laws? Always found that hangovers were not as bad in Germany as in the UK.

Otherwise I can drink most crappy lagers as long as they're cold enough

Think I'll give the prix garantie beers a go next week, cheers

So Anker (aka wAnker) is a Carlsberg in disguise?

One of my favourites and 24 for 12 stutz on sale in Coop is a great deal.

That is only 1 chf per liter.

You probably drank it cold then. Slacker beers like these should be enjoyed lukewarm in a park, preferably with some dogs strolling around.

Re: Is coop prix guarantie beer brewed in the Falken brewery in Schaffhausen?

Some days ago I noticed they also have Prix Garantie Weissbier.
It's rather good, actually I prefer it to the Lager.
It's a bit more expensive, though, 80 cents I think...

Oops, must remember to properly read the entire thread, didn't notice somebody else already had mentioned the Weiss version...
Although not noticing this in a beer-drinking thread might not be that out-of-line!

The cheap alkoholfrei, and also the with alkohol version, are both fine from Denner. Can't remember the name now, but the tin logo is in green, and it's only 50c with or without. Well worth an shot, and German to boot.

Is coop prix guarantie bier brewed in the Falken brewery in Schaffhausen?
The Helvetia/Prix Garantie sold by Coop in 50 cl cans is produced by Heineken Switzerland (this was confirmed by a report from the competition commission back in 2008, which covered Heineken's takeover of Eichhof.
Comparing it with "green" Heineken which costs four times as much is very interesting, as Prix Garantie is a lot tastier, bot completely watery, with actually noticeable flowery hop character. Shows you the price you have to pay for all the lovely Heineken marketing around an inferior product...

But beware, just recently, Coop have launched another Prix Garantie pale lager in packs of twenty small bottles. This one is brewed in France, contains additives, and my take on it is that it could be Meteor blonde in a diferent package... and it is a lot worse than the canned Prix Garantie.

More lilek a slightly more watered down Feldschlösschen... frankly, if you're after cheap, drinkable beer, the canned Prix Garantoe Pale lager is even cheaper and objectively a better product.
