Founded by the legendary and charismatic Jérôme Rebetez in November 1997, the BFM (Brasserie des Franches-Montagnes) and its beers have always been similar to their boss: full of character and uncompromising. This initially one-man company has now about 30 employees. Having fought many years almost alone against an ocean of insipid blond lagers, the BFM is the flagship of the swiss brewing fleet, as well inland as abroad (about 20% of the production is exported to 18 different countries). Offers a large palette of beers among them the legendary Abbaye de Saint Bon-Chien brewed in honour of the deceased (and since them of course sanctified) cat of the brewery.
The plant has been first renewed in Sommer 2010 to face the increasing demand then again in 2019 which should allow a doubling of the production until 2024.
Leads my top Swiss brewery list (again) since January 2016.

Brewer: Alexandre Courtet and Michel Reuter.
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 :-)
Offers 5 core beers

Farmers brewing their own beers. The first brewery in this canton to brew with local ingredients only. The quality is not convincing at all.

They probably have special prices for sugar in this part of the country ... Very dubious to say the least. Without doubts one of the worst brewery in the country.
