A perfect place is a place that’s perfect for a purpose
At Switzerland’s Feldschlösschen brewery, the words ‘since 1876’ appear on every bottle. That’s not just a statement. It’s a philosophy. The same brewing methods since 1876. The same recipes. The same quality. A promise that every beer will be as good as the last. And if the brewery is protected, their product is protected – and their tradition is protected. Fire safety systems from Siemens protect Feldschlösschen’s most important ingredient: The building.
A perfect place to keep a tradition on tap
Feldschlösschen: The building is the beer
Feldschlösschen translates into "Little castle in the field". A poetic name for a special place. Feldschlösschen is not just an average production facility, but a place that breathes craftsmanship and tradition. It is also the name of the beer, printed of every single label for 140 years. Since then, every beer has been as good as the last.
The best way of keeping tradition alive: protect it
The greatest threat to this exceptional bond between beer and building is fire. Brewing takes place at 105 °C. That makes fire safety just as important as the vats.
A perfect beer needs fire safety
From the first simple alarm bell to today’s modern fire detection system, fire safety has been an essential part of the brewery. The brewery has its own fire department and its own fire engines. They protect the building, the tradition – and give the brewers time to do what they are best at: create an iconic beer.
Feldschlösschen beer without its tradition, without the building, that’s impossible.
