The perfect pop
Our swing top for more freshness
It's as much a part of Mönchshof as a real lemon juice is to our Natur Radler: We are obviously talking about our stylish swing top that is still mounted on every single Mönchshof bottle by hand even today!
But the swing top is more than just a pretty face. It also has lots of practical benefits:
For example, it makes sure that the sparkling freshness of the beer stays safely in the bottle and that the beer can be resealed at any time and enjoyed for longer.
Swing tops are obviously considerably more expensive than normal crown caps, but they also help to protect the environment because they are reusable!
Finally, opening a beer with a swing top is a lot more fun than without one: The release of carbon dioxide pressure when you open a beer gives the famous "pop" sound that has accompanied many a merry Mönchshof round!
So let it pop – it's worth it!
Did you know?
The first beer bottles had a cork and wire or a string.
With the breakthrough of bottled beer, a top that would withstand the pressure of the carbon dioxide in beer was required.
Finally: Berlin manufacturer, Nicolai Fritzner, invented the swing top as we know it today, back in 1877.
At Mönchshof, the metal frame with clapper and rubber seal is still mounted onto the bottle by hand for the cult pop sound.
