Brasserie Mutzig was founded in 1810 by Antoine Wagner in Alsace (North-East France).
In 1969 the brewery merged into Alsacienne de Breasserie (Albra) along with Alsatian breweries de l'Espérance, de la Perle, de Colmar, and Haag à Ingwiller.
In 1972 Albra was acquired by Heineken and the Mutzig brewery was closed in 1989. In 1987 Mützig was launched in Africa as a premium heavy hop lager and is now the flagship brand of the Sierra Leone Brewery (SLBL)
Some of the Brewery's Range
Over the years the brand identity is updated and re-launched with subtle changes, a change of Logo or a new font.
Sometimes this brand update is done by the new owners after a brewery has been sold, other times just to give the brand a fresh new look on the ever growing market.
Below are some notes to help identify some of these changes and an aid to reference the year of the glass.
