Time flies, we are already getting incredibly close to Christmas.

It’s a time when one should relax, slow down and reflect; take a break from the hectic times. Time for us to thank all our friends who have said kind words about our great Neuschwansteiner beer. We therefore proudly present to you ‘Neuschwansteiner Testimonials Edition #3’, some lovely testimonials from our friends from all around the world, some from our Abu Dhabi debut 2015, just in time for this weekend’s 2016 FORMULA 1 ETIHAD AIRWAYS ABU DHABI GRAND PRIX, the season’s final race.

“Tilke Engineers & Architects“ is recognized as the world’s leading designer for racetrack and test facilities. Hermann Tilke said: „I have been able to experience the Neuschwansteiner beer at several occasions, like Amber Lounge and the charity events during the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

It has a very delicious taste, smooth and perfect as a welcome drink for such a reception.

In addition I like the fact that Neuschwansteiner CEO Christian Seitz cares about children’s charities, such as the ‘Make a Wish’ Foundation and the ‘WORLD CHILDHOOD FOUNDATION by Her Majesty Queen Silvia of Sweden’.”

Mark Sutton and Keith Sutton

Mark Sutton said: “I enjoy working with the great people of Neuschwansteiner and it is always a pleasure to photograph the beautiful Neuschwansteiner bottle!

Neuschwansteiner stage top-class events and I felt honored that they chose my photographs for their Abu Dhabi exhibition in aid of the ‘WORLD CHILDHOOD FOUNDATION by Her Majesty Queen Silvia of Sweden’. Most of all however, I love the beer. It is smooth, a perfect aperitif and at every event I have seen it served, all the people, especially also the ladies, just love it!”

Keith Sutton said: ”The Neuschwansteiner bottle looks just extremely stylish, but you can’t just keep it inside the fabulous packaging, you have to open and enjoy it! Chilled to 8 degrees or less, it tastes delicious. It’s perfect as a welcome drink at any reception as well as accompanying star-rated dishes!”

General Manager Stefan Fuchs

Located on the shores of the Arabian Gulf, Jumeirah at Etihad Towers is the business, social and gourmet hub of Abu Dhabi.

The 5-star luxury city hotel was developed under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Suroor bin Mohammed Al Nahyan’s Projects Department.

General Manager Stefan Fuchs said: “It was an honour to host and support a charity event in aid of the ‘World Childhood Foundation by Her Majesty Queen Silvia of Sweden’ at our restaurant Pearls by Michael Caines in November 2015. The presence of their brand Ambassador H.R.H. Prince Leopold of Bavaria and many other distinct personalities from the world of Formula 1, made the evening one of a kind in Abu Dhabi.

The cooperation with Neuschwansteiner gave the opportunity to introduce a new taste to the au­dience in the capital. We very much look forward to future successful ventures and events.“
