"Brewer: Christian Schenkl.
Opened on August 26th 2006. A brewery started with lot of ambitions considering the brewing capacities and enjoying a lot of success at fast speed. Some contract brewing: Goldküstenbräu and Oberlanderbräu (until 2012; same beers as Kellerfrisch and Amber), Lozaernerbier (same recipe also), Fischerstube Ueli Winterbogg (2009-2011), Falkenbräu Festbier (until Spring 2014) and Züri-Bräu Original (since 2014). Good beers but by far not enough sorts.
Has been able to grow further despite a reduction of contract brewing (was once about 25% of the production, today probably only about 10% though the new contract with Züri-Bräu could be interesting)."

Uninspired middle-sized brewery offering below average, boring lagers. You have to be from the french-speaking side of the country and particularly proud of it to like this brewery.
Owned partially by Löwengarten (probably now Schützengarten since the take-over from 2006).
The brewery has moved from Romanel/Lausanne to Yverdon in March 2012 and hope to double its production soon. This is very likely to happen after the potentiel vacuity created by the closure of Cardinal in Fribourg.

Well, well... What should I say without being unpleasant... They gave a little bit more body to their initial beers, replacing some of the incredible sweetness with a bad, rough and aggressive bitterness. This is very surely brewed with extracts and in any cases just at the level of bad homebrew. You don't believe me ? Just ask Kuaska :-)

Brewer: Matthias Schumann.
Their beers (Goldküstenbräu and Oberländerbräu) were contract brewed at Aare-Bier until April 2012. Their own brewery opened in April 2012 (initialy scheduled for December 2011) in Uster. They also had a joint venture with Usterbräu. The Goldküstenbräu and the Oberländerbräu Hell were the same beers as Aare-Bier Kellerfrisch. And so was Oberländerbräu Amber the same as Aare-Bier Amber. And I don't want to talk about the Uster Export... After having fooled the consumers 4 years long while talking about a beer from the region, they are finally brweing themselves. I'm just curious to know if their customers will notice the change of recipe or not ...

"The biggest brewery of the country. Owner of Cardinal, Hürlimann, Valaisanne, Löwenbräu, Warteck and Gurten, brewing 40% of the whole swiss production and controlling about 70% of the drink market. Nevertheless after losing each year parts of the beer market they decided to sell the brewery to Carlsberg (11-2000). Since then, they are trying to brew more ""specialities"" (Frühlingsbier, Weihnachtsbier, 2.4 Max) but without success on the quality side and even less commercially as they are still losing more market shares every year."

Each brew is a new recipe and, strangely enough in this part of the country, the brewers are brewing bottom-fermented beers (except the wheat of course) and are strictly applying the Reinheitsgebot. To each his own ... Uneven quality but some of their beers can be really good.

Big local and, once upon a time, above average beers. They are brewing 3 beers (Helles, Märzen and Weizen) + about 10 different styles each year. Innovative and creative, yes. Quality ? Not always.

Their beers made me a very bad impression some years ago (not a surprise for a brewpub in this part of the country) and a recent re-rate could barely correct it. But despite this, you should try their Body Check, a beer generously hopped with Nelson Sauvin (this helps to hide the failures ...).

After a complaint from Heineken, the police seized 1000 bottles of Keineken on August 28th 2009. In January 2010 they changed the name of the brewery so that their beers can now be sold. The beers are now contract brewed by the brand new Brauerei Luzern (August 2010).

An ambitious brewery which plans to control 10% of the beer market from Ticino and to reach 2500 to 3000 hl after 2 years. Until the local plant is built, the beer is actually brewed by Rosengarten. But after 3 years there is still no brewery to see and the company has to face financial problems. Will their dream comes true ? For myself, I'm ready to bet on a negative denouement.

"Client brewer (had register-number 311).
Two homebrewers got the wonderful idea to commercialize beers brewed in Germany (Engelbräu (Rettenberg/Allgäu)) in the region of Zürich and it seems that they are enjoying an impressive start. Clever and fine. But as they are using the ""drink local"" trend for boosting their sales, they will try to be consequent and build their own brewery in Zürich. This should be done by the end of 2010.
April 2010: the beers are now brewed in Switzerland by Falken. So it looks like they gave up the idea to build their own plant (I don't think this was ever an option ...). Their beers are available in retail business in the german speaking part of the country which very certainly made them pass over the 10'000 hl range."

This festival, first organised in 2003, brings together more than 20 small to middle swiss breweries. A good opportunity to meet up with the brewers although the conditions for beer tasting and talking are far to be optimum in the evening (lot of people and loud music). Anyway this is a pretty interesting festival which every swiss beer lover must attend.

2 8.6 Not a brewery but a Client brewer. The beers are brewed elsewhere in the country (Turbinenbräu) and were at sometimes even brewed in France. This fact was originally maintained secret, probably because of the importance of the marketing aspect to brew local beer. The status of la Belle de Genève was quite unknown in 2004. They had to face some financial problems and closed the Brasserie Artisanale de Genève (which probably never really existed ...). They came back in march 2005 with the ambition to build a brewery in Genève.
It looks again a bit different since 2007 as the phone number and email published on the contact list are no more valid and it seems you have to make your orders via the webmaster ... Very strange.

23 7.62 Belongs to the Feldschloesschen-Huerlimann-Holding Group which has been bought by Carlsberg (november 2000). Cardinal was scheduled to be closed in 1997 but Feldschloesschen had to face with serious resistance from the beer-lovers of the french-speaking part of the country. The sales dropped down and Feldschloesschen had to come back on its decision. Also brewing the old Gurten brands. Anyway their beers are not exactly what I would call good and they are making most of their money recently with sweetened fruit beers (the Eve serie) or even lemonade (Angel). So don't count on me to cry the day it will be closed.
And the decision came on August 31st 2010: the plant will be closed on June 2011. The reason is the outsourcing by Carlsberg of 20% of the production from the Feldschlösschen Group. The plant in Fribourg being used at 40%, it seems logical that Feldschlösschen has chosen to regroup the production in Rheinfelden.
Closed in June 2011.

1 13.6 Brewer: Thomas Hüsler.
Originally called Hüslerbräu. Made a joint venture with Braukultur AG (owner of Oberländerbräu and Goldküstenbräu) on april 2009.
The production of the Usterbräu Export remained a weird and secret story as Aare Bier was involved as contract brewer ... It changed (partially) as an own brewery was opened in 2011 but a part of the production (maybe all ?) was still contracted brewed by Aare Bier.
Closed in Fall 2013 because of never ending difficulties.
