Kronenbourg 1664 is the UK's No. 2 premium lager, originating in Alsace in Eastern France. Made with selected malts and exclusive yeast, Kronenbourg 1664 is a darkish beer with golden highlights. Its aromatic hoppiness and subtle bitterness come from long maturation in the cellar. Its unique recipe is distinguished by the use of the aromatic Strisselspalt hop, which setsit apart from other beers. The Strisselspalt hop has been exclusive to Alsace since 1885 and gives the beer an unrivalled aroma and superior taste.
