Forst Brewery

The Forst Brewery, fully known as "Brauerei Forst AG", is one of the oldest and most prestigious breweries in Italy. It is located in the small village of Forst, which belongs to Algund, and is very close to the spa town of Merano in South Tyrol. Its history dates back to 1857, when it was founded and has since been owned by the Fuchs family. Over the decades, the brewery has made a name for itself in the production of premium beers and strictly follows traditional brewing methods, which are supplemented by modern technologies.
