This enterprise snuck under the radar before the liberalization of microbreweries with their less-than-1 percent-alcohol brews back in the early 1990s. Now, however, Sankt Gallen seem to be specializing in high-gravity “sweets beers,” though their golden, amber, and pale ales remain popular too.


Imperial Chocolate Stout

beer style: Imperial Stout
alcohol content: 8.5% ABV

The most popular of the “sweets beers,” this limited edition bottling is released in time for St. Valentine’s Day and quickly sells out. Lots of rich chocolate and caramel flavors are tempered by a touch of acidity and very low hopping.
